Explore Powell Lake from the OLC by tandem canoe or for an additional fee have us deliver and pick up your canoes from another freshwater launch location

The world-renowned Powell Forest Canoe Route is a 57 km, 8 lake, 5 portage journey that takes roughly 5 days if you paddle the whole circuit. Portages range from 0.7 km – 2.8 km, and paddling stretches from 1 km – 28.5 km. There are several excellent freshwater paddling routes within the circuit. The best time to travel the route is from June – October.  Currently the Centre rents the Yukon by Clipper Canoes.  New boats are being added regularly to our rental fleet.

All canoe rentals include:

  • 2 paddles and a spare
