Bowran Lake


Bowran Lake is a large lake used by both motorized and non-motorized craft. The lake itself is part of a large wilderness area on the western slopes of the Cariboo Mountain Range, lying within the Bowran Lake Provincial Park. This park has a world-famous canoe circuit, which circumvents many lakes within the area, including Bowran, Swan, Spectacle, Babcock, Sandy, Lanezi, Isaac, Indianpoint, and Kibbee Lakes.
