From Highway #1 (Trans-Canada Highway) near Hope, take exit #168. Follow Flood Hope Road east to a flashing amber light and turn right on to Silver Skagit Road. Head south on Silver Skagit Road, continuing on as it transitions to a car accessible gravel road. At the junction for Silver Lake Provincial Park, stay to the left and follow signs marked for Ross Lake instead.
Shortly after the road's 16 km marker, turn left on to a side road marked with a sign for the Eaton Lake Trail and Eaton Creek forestry campsite. Follow the road a short distance to the campsite area, where there is parking for approximately four cars. If the trailhead parking area is full, carefully park on the edge of the main road.
