Things To Do Around Bowron Lake
Stay a few days and enjoy a hike in the surrounding mountains, spend a day in Barkerville Historic Town or Wells (only 20 min. from Beckers Lodge) or relax around the Lodge. Swim in Bowron Lake or sunbathe on the beach. Take a leisurely walk to Kibbee Lake, try your luck at fishing, or do some hands-on gold panning at a local claim. You can also rent a canoe or kayak and go paddling for the day. You can paddle down the Bowron River or go to the Cariboo or Mitchell Rivers for a day of fishing. We’ll take care of the arrangements at the lodge.

Year Round Activities at Bowron Lake
Take a canoe or kayak and discover Bowron Lake with its sandy beaches and the big marsh area on the upper end. Here you’ll find a great variety of birds and, if you’re there at the right time, you will see moose feeding on water plants or you can watch bald eagles diving for prey. Let’s not forget listening to the call of a common loon. You can also throw a line and catch a Rainbow Trout or Dolly Varden or just sit off shore, relax, and enjoy the silence of nature. Whatever you do or not, it will be a great and memorable trip for you and your kids, family, and friends.
