Boating and Canoeing

Canoeing with dog


Bring your boat

The Campbell Region is blessed with several large lakes accessible to motorized boaters. Some lakes have convenient boat ramps that make it easy to un- and reload your watercraft.

Operators of watercrafts in Canada are required by Law to wear approved life jackets.

Canoeing is a great way to enjoy our rivers and lakes. A very worthwhile daytrip is canoeing down the Pelly River from Ross River to Faro. This trip will take about ten hours, but you can take it easy and camp out in the wild on the shores of the Pelly or on one of its islands.

Safety tips:
  • Wear appropriate clothing and be prepared for weather changes
  • Always wear life vests
  • Bring enough food and drinks
  • Let someone know where you plan to go and when you are expected to be back
  • Leave the water during thunder storms
