Bowron Lake Lodge has been owned and operated by the McKitrick family who have provided service to this world famous canoeing adventure area for over 70 years. At the gateway to Bowron Lake Park the lodge is situated on 254 acres with 2,200 feet of gorgeous low bank beachfront, a mile of frontage on the Bowron River and about half mile of frontage on Antler Creek.
Lodge accommodation offers 14 units including single motel units, 1 bedroom duplex units, 2 bedroom cabins and a 3 bedroom house. The 3,000 ft airstrip with open approaches at both ends provides easy access for small aircraft. The main lodge burned in October of 2008 and the office is now located beside the old site in the former restaurant building.
Guests in the cottages and RV camping area on the beach enjoy a panoramic view of Sugarloaf Mountain and the more distant snowcapped peaks. The property is flat, slightly elevated above water level and ideal for development and construction. The entire beach front is great for boating and swimming with a very gradual slope and no drop offs.
Beach improvements over the years have provided a beautiful area for camping, playing, sun tanning and swimming. The campground fronts on both Bowron Lake and Bowron River. There is a modern central washroom and coin operated showers. Campfires are permitted. Community cooking shelters are provided and your pet on a leash is welcome.
The office is now housed in the former restaurant building and offers a small store, carrying souvenirs, groceries, fishing licenses, fire wood as well as camping and fishing supplies. The lodge offers rentals of canoes, kayaks, catamarans, motor boats and paddle boats.
