If you've submitted a reservation or cancellation request, we are processing them as quickly as possible. Once your credit card has been charged, you are booked. You'll receive a confirmation by email but we have a backlog due to the large number of bookings. At this time of year, we send confirmations and cancellations out in the order that guests are arriving at the lodge. We're currently processing confirmations for people arriving before AUGUST 15, 2021. We are taking reservations for anytime though. Your patience is appreciated.
From Vancouver, BC: Drive Highway 1 to Hope and up the Fraser Canyon to Cache Creek. Take Highway 97 North to 100 Mile House, Williams Lake and Quesnel. Just north of Quesnel turn right onto Highway 26 to the little town of Wells and continue another 5 km towards Barkerville.
From Jasper, Alberta: Take Hwy 16 to Prince George, Hwy 97 to Quesnel, then Hwy 26 from Quesnel to Wells.
NOTE: For your own safety, PLEASE, DO NOT take the Bowron Lake Forestry Road noted on Google Maps, MapQuest, or other GPS or electronic devices. It is an unmaintained logging road and may not be passable.
Just before Barkerville turn left at the junction with the big sign of the Bowron Lake Area and Becker’s Lodge. This last part of your journey is 25 km of gravel road. Please drive with caution as the road can be slippery at times. However, the road is well maintained and is suitable for any vehicle, even big RVs. Becker’s Lodge is approximately 2.5 km before BC Parks’ Bowron Lake Provincial Park campground and registration centre.
