Canoe at Jones Lake

Rate this Adventure Canada Jones Lake, BC

Added by Sierra Nickel

Dreamy lake accessible by vehicle, with a stunning view of the Cheam Range.

Pull off the Highway 1 at the the Laidlaw exit (heading towards Hope, BC). Turn right onto Jones Lake service road. Ta-da! After traveling about 30 minutes up a reasonably maintained gravel road, you'll arrive at the lake. There are multiple campsites available along the shore, you needs only drive and find one that feels like home. There are also privately owned cabins here, which you can rent out (by owner). The water is extremely cold so be safe while canoeing or kayaking!

Pack List

  • Canoe
  • Warm clothes (for when the sun goes behind the mountain)
  • A 4x4, depending on current road conditions
  • Your camera!
