Nestled in the spectacular Mount Benson area,
Westwood Lake Campground Resort makes the ideal base camp for mountain bike adventure. With a hot, dry climate and hundreds of kilometres of trails spidering from the park there is something for every level of cyclist.
Over the last few summers, many guests have
relax on the sandy beaches and swam in the
refreshing clear water at the Westwood Lake.
Others have simply enjoyed casual walks around
the 6.5 km nature trail, which start with an
