We just used boron lakes lodge for outfitting for the canoe circuit so cannot comment on accommodations. I chose them because they rented clipper trippers and I’d read bad things about beckers. They were very nice and easygoing and even though we did the full circuit in three days (and rented for up to 10) I didn’t think the prices... More

Stumbled upon this beautiful campground with our site being right on the beach with breathtaking views. It was a short drive to Barkerville which we were going to visit. It was a clean lake for swimming and we caught some fish in the boat but yet the lake was not noisy and overcrowded with speedboats and jetskis etc like some... More

I used the Bowron Lake Lodge for the purpose of trip outfitting only and did not stay there overnight. Therefore, I cannot comment on the state of the accomodations specifically. We were camping anyway so just stayed on the BC Parks campground about 2km down the road where the Bowron Lake Circuit registration offices were for a total of $16.... More

I can't believe they rent these cabins for money in good conscience. We were not told that the propane is off and that the stove and heaters no longer work. There wasn't even toilet paper. The fridge was in working order but was mouldy and the chairs and couch smelled of urine. The view is spectacular but the cabins are... More

Further to my review of July 2009, I'd like to say that the "bad managers" were removed and the owners have taken over the campground again. It is a relaxed environment with a million dollar view! I'm not sure if the cabins are being rented anymore but camping is available right on the edge of the water. There is a... More

I stayed in a water front duplex cabin and it was great ($50.00 per night) the cabins have running cold water, lights, flush toilet, heater, fully equipped kitchen, queen bed and pull out couch and they have hot running showers in a separate building. Sitting on the deck and watching the sun go down was like being in heaven, I... More

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... More

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...
