BC Parks has confirmed that they will start selling 2023 permits for the Bowron Lake Canoe Circuit (full & W. Side) on DECEMBER 1, 2022. Permits are available at bcparks.ca
Our cabins are open all winter and we have snowmobiles, gear, and snowshoes available to rent as well.
When calling our reservations office, please leave only ONE phone message or send ONE email and wait for a return call or email reply.
Due to the high volume of calls we receive, if you call repeatedly it fills up our voice mail (even if you hang up) and actually slows us down returning calls to customers.
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.
