Birken Lakeside Resort is an unpretentious waterfront resort located directly adjacent to stunning Gates Lake in the BC coastal mountains.

The resort features six themed rental cabins, a campsite, laundry, dock and amenities that will provide everything you need for that 'get away from it all experience' . Located about a 40 minute drive from Whistler  and 20 minutes from Birkenhead Provincial Park, the Birken Lakeside Resort can provide a comfortable and fun filled base for hiking, watersports, nature spotting or just relaxing in an unspoiled natural setting.


We have six rental cabins, each with a unique personality. The cabins are cozy, comfortable and located in a wooded setting close to the waterfront. Some, but not all of the cabins are equipped with full kitchens, a fridge and woodstove.

Birken Lakeside Resort is a resort catering to those with an appreciation for our lake, the mountains and the natural wooded surroundings.

The cabins do not have built in washrooms, however men's and women's heated washrooms with hot showers are located in a central facility. Cabin rental includes the use of showers and laundry facilities.

Quiet time is from 11 pm until 8 am. Fires must be extinguished by 1 am with water provided for this purpose. Pets are welcome, dogs must be leashed at all times while in the campground. Cats must not be let out to roam.


We have 22 campsites (plus 1 group campsite) in the forest surrounding the resort. Campsites are all lakeview, and are suitable for tenting or small RVs. None of the campsites have hook ups. Please call if you have a large RV prior to making a reservation.

We have an additional group campsite which can hold 4 RV and 8 tents; based on number of vehicles we can provide a quote for the group campsite.
