Swan Lake Provincial Park BC was built in 1918 and is the 3rd oldest park in British Columbia. The park is 67 ha (165 acres). The lake is very shallow with the maximum depth of only 3 meters.

The first white settlers arrived on the south end of the lake in 1910. In 1921 the first school opened on the south shore of the lake, and in 1930 the Northern Alberta Railway came to Swan Lake. A community hall was built at the park in 1937 and in 1939 the Sudetans arrived by passenger train. In 1942 the US Army set up a base camp on the north end of the lake.

A Fish Ladder was constructed through cooperation between the Ministry of Environment, BC Parks, and BC Conservation Foundation, with funding provided by the Habitat Conservation Trust Fund. The purpose of this ladder is to facilitate movement of fish between Tupper River and Swan Lake.

The Fish Ladder is a very interesting site and the bridge can be crossed to get from the campground to the Boat Launch area.
