Road is paved to turnoff and then there's 5 km of gravel... Cell coverage stops just past the town of Beaver Mines..
Fishing is pretty good.. Rainbow trout and the odd bull trout.. Gets a little weedy later in the season, but haven't been out yet..
Campground is great IMO... No services.. There's water pumps around the campgound, but not sure it is potable.. Larger trailers might be an issue.. Ours is 26' and we typically stay in the D loop up top.. The A loop has quite a few nice spots in it too.. B and C might be snug for ours and usually fills up first as it is next to the lake...
There's a few decent hikes in the area. And you're a short drive to do some more exploring - Castle Falls, Castle Mountain Ski Hill, Beauvais Lake, Frank Slide, Crowsnest Pass to name a couple.. It is in the "Crown of the Continent" area...
Is there something more specific you are looking for? I live about 30 minutes from Beaver Mines Lake...
