    Hows the lake there for paddling? Thinking of booking there to do some light canoeing.

    It's a teeny lake, you could canoe across it in about 10 minutes.

    Stayed at Elkwood this past weekend, it was super nice there. Saw 1 of the 4 grizzly's in the area, too (along the lake trail driving in).

    This, post 2013 floods the feed water for it got diverted so it’s basically just taking whatever runoff and rain falls there. That said barrier lake is about a 10 minute drive from the camp site.

    Barrier is about 25 minutes from Sibbald, and is crazy busy every weekend, and subject to wild winds. Not where I'd go for "light canoeing" personally. That being said, I don't have a better suggestion if you find Sibbald too small.

    Yes, even though it is small people do canoe on it. It's a very pleasant area.

    I went backcountry camping at Lillian Lake with my 6 year old on Friday of the long weekend. We had two grizzlies wander into the campground around dinner time. That was a bit sketchy for a back country adventure, no cell service, 6.5km in the bush. We managed to push them out of the area while crossing our fingers that they wouldn't return that night.
