Added by Katrina Schellenberg
A beautiful location for kayaking, fishing, canoeing, or for a nice trail walk around the lake.
McConnell Lake provides amazing, quiet waters for kayaking, paddle boarding and maybe even swimming in the summer! The area even offers 45km of trail, including a primitive trail around the lake (3.5km).
Known for its clear water, McConnell is also a good place for fishing large rainbow trout, and ice-fishing in the winter.
