Murtle Canoes is now taking reservations for the 2019 Summer season!

About Us

smokerBlackwell Parks have been the Park Operators for Murtle Lake since 2003. Our staff patrol the lake, maintain the trails and campgrounds, collect your fees, and help ensure you have a safe and fun experience.

We’ve seen several off-site canoe rental outfitters come and go, so in 2009 we started a rental service of our own.

This is a small operation–limited to 18 canoes–book early to confirm your reservation!

  • Please Note – Online Payments:

    Even if you have paid your BC Parks camping fees online, you must fill out a registration envelope (including your online payment number), take the tear off number with you, and put the envelope in the vault.
