Historic Milepost 392, Summit Lake; no services. Summit Pass (elev. 4,250 feet/1,295m), highest summit on the Alaska Highway. Summit Lake (Stone Mountain) Provincial Campground. The campground here is dry camp only with back-in rv spots not to exceed 30' in length. There is a large parking lot across the highway where larger vehicles can park overnight.
At 4,250 feet, this is the highest summit on the highway. At Mile 397, crews had to blast through the rock to create a road. This is Stone Mountain and there will be anywhere between 1 and 100 Stone Sheep on the clifts above and below. There is only one pull-out at the cliff. Everytime I pass this point, I get several new images of Stone Sheep.
This is a beautiful campground with mountain hiking trails and a rather unique composting toilet which is up a flight of steps and seems breezy and fresh. The campsites are on gravel pads and are fairly close together, with low vegetation between them. Some of the sites are right on the beautiful, clear lake; others have shrubs surrounding them. The surrounding scenery is magnificent, with mountain views, lake views and plenty of wildflowers. RV's over 30' must park overnight in te parking lot across the highway.
Located at kilometre 595 (Historic Milepost 392) of the Alaska Highway, roughly 140 kilometres west of Fort Nelson.
