Default Canoe camping trips in BC

Hello everyone

My wife and I purchased a canoe in the spring and have been doing day trips to local lakes in the lower mainland, and are planning on doing some canoe camping trips this month.

This weekend we are going to Golden Ears and will probably camp near the narrows.

Next weekend we were planning on going to Murtle Lake, but with the wildfire activity and it being a 6 hour drive we might re-consider.

The weekend after next, we have the west side of Bowron planned (3 nights).


I might have to cancel Murtle and Bowron due to wildfire activity, does anyone have other canoe camping trip ideas? Thanks

You're welcome! Enjoy your Clipper; I have one myself. It's a beautiful canoe for what you are doing!

What about camping at 20 mile bay in Harrison and canoeing to the north end of the lake? Or doing Pitt Lake from the Pitt Lake Canoe rental parking lot?

Main Lake on Quadra Island has some nice boat-in camping spots. Not a lot of paddling to be had there, but it's quiet and has nice swimming. You can explore the lakes over a couple days.

We want to do another canoe/camping trip this weekend (just got back from the narrows at alouette). Somewhere relatively close by, within 3 hour drive of surrey.

I am thinking about either

a) driving to 20 mile bay on Thursday night and chancing the first-come-first-serve campsites. Then launching from 20 mile bay and camping at one of the spots in West Harrison. I will have to pay to leave my truck in a campsite or maybe I can just pay them to let me park my truck somewhere all weekend.

b) driving to pitt river canoe adventures on friday morning and leaving it there for the weekend ($5/night overnight parking), then canoeing north up the east side to raven creek or osprey creek. It's also FCFS sites, so we would be chancing that no one would already be there.

What do you guys/gals think?
