Bowron Lake Lodge is a dismal shadow of its former self. The main lodge burned down two years ago; the water in the campground and vacation rentals is contaminated and must be boiled before drinking -- except that there is no propane for the gas stoves. It is terribly overpriced for the shabby, run down accommodations that are offered, which...

We rented a kayak, to do the whole bowron lake circuit. On the first lake the kayak started sinking, and we discovered a big hole. They did not want to reimburse us the money, because they accused us of causing the hole! They treated us like cheaters and were not respectful at all. No service! Later we heard other stories...

Staff were ver accomidaiting, equipement rentals were perfect for the ciruit. They gave us a free upgrade. I would highly recomend them, keeping in mind the very remote location.

Do not go to this lodge. First of all, the accommodations would not be out of place on the set of a movie about post-apocalyptic life, or maybe even Compton. Everything seemed to be sagging under its own weight, paint was flaking off everywhere, and EVERYTHING WAS BOARDED UP. Which provides a nice segue into my next point. Second of...

I've been coming here with my family for a long time now. I love it up here. Sure, spending two full weeks with the family and no one else but the family can be a little overwhelming, but the large camp ground makes it easier to handle. Yes, the camp ground is a little rustic for some modern day traveller's...

The untouched beauty of the Bowron area and the Bowron Lake Lodge has welcomed my family and I for the past 35 years. I remember growing up here and enjoying the wonders of nature and meeting great people from all over the world. Everyone comes here searching for similar things...quiet serenity, a place to get away, great hosts like the...

The lodge was very accomodating to the needs of our group, even offering to put a pot of coffee on for us in the morning. The Bear Mercantile is a great place for an early morning breakfast before you head out on the circuit. The rooms were clean and reasonable. The canoes we rented were is great shape. The guy...

Recently we just made a trip out to Bowron Lake Lodge with a group of seven; however only after we had been informed that the managers Skye and her husband were no longer allowed back on the property (thank goodness). We have been camping out at the lodge for several years now and enjoy the hospitality of the Mckitricks; however...

On my recent trip to the Bowron lakes, I was made aware of the neglect of the McKitrick family of not only their lodge but also of the environment. When we arrived the propane on the entire site was shut down by the BC Safety Authority based on major violations in the gas grid and venting of Propane gases into...
