We booked our first Bowron Lake circuit trip with Becker's Lodge. This beautiful resort has a stunning view of Bowron Lake. The charming, well-constructed trapper cabins that we stayed in were water tight, sufficiently heated by a wood-burning stove, with firm mattresses, warm bedding, and very clean. Our favorite fully equipped cabin was the Betty Wendle with a large deck, bbq, and breathtaking view of the lake. The coin showers were hot and the gravel covered campround provided great drainage.
Becker's had everything we needed for our trip. For the four of us, our circuit package included 2 nights stay in trapper cabins, 1 canoe and 2 kayaks equipped with paddles and lifejackets and 3 carts. We also rented storage containers and dry bags which we were very grateful for during the rainy weather and when we accidentally tipped our canoe. The carts were lightweight and sturdy which were better for attaching to kayaks while paddling.
Upon our arrival, our host Lothar was friendly and helpful and had a unique sense of humour. He transported us with all of our equipment to the head of the parking lot for the first portage. He gave hands on demonstrations on how to attach the carts to the boats. He even had a safe to keep your valuables that you did not want to take with you.
Where the service was really exceptional was when 2 of us had to be pulled out half way through the circuit due to an emergency. Loftar was concerned and very accomodating which greatly helped to alleviate our worries. When we got back from the hospital, he checked up on us frequently to make sure we had everything we needed. The lady who ran the general store was also wonderful. She helped us choose food to get us by until the rest of our family was back from the circuit, and she helped me find a beautiful gift for my father's 80th birthday.
We would definitely return to Becker's and we highly recommend it.
