Paddling on McKenna Creek

McKenna Creek provides a few minutes of pleasant paddling quite different from the lake paddling as canoeist near the completion of a 72-mile circuit of a chain of 11 lakes in Bowron Lake Provincial Park, British Columbia.

The park, which is located about 85 kilometers east of the town of Quesnel, is a beautiful setting of deep lakes and high mountains popular with both kayakers and canoeists. Campgrounds are well maintained and have campfire pits or areas and strong metal bins for protecting food from bears. Some campgrounds also have primitive cabins.
