General Information

Bowron Lake Provincial Park, located about 144 kilometers south east of Prince George in the Caribou Mountains, is a magnificent wilderness of more than 121 600 hectares and characterized by a system of six major lakes and connecting waterways. Rugged mountains, averaging about 2100 meters in elevation, form a majestically scenic backdrop for our challenging wilderness adventures with Canadian Eskimo dog teams.

This beautiful and wild looking dog bears very much resemblance to the well-known Husky and goes back 2000 years in history. They are direct descendants of the polar wolf tamed and trained by Eskimos up in the high arctic to be used for packing, hunting and as sled dogs. Canada’s oldest aboriginal race was virtually on the edge of extinction 15 years ago when Bill Carpenter of Yellowknife managed to find some unregistered but purebred animals. His Eskimo Dog Research Foundation brought the breed back to international recognition.

Our well trained dogs run in teams of four to six in double file, pulling well constructed toboggan sleds. We travel mainly groomed trails and provide basic instruction in handling dog sleds and commanding a team. No mushing experience is necessary but reasonably fit condition is recommended. From Kruger Lake Camp you will experience daytrips into the surrounding area and if weather conditions permit overnight trips on the frozen waters of Indianpoint Lake and Isaac Lake.

Kruger Lake is a beautiful lake one kilometer outside the northern boundary of Bowron Lake Park. It is one and a half kilometers in length and lies at an elevation of 3.200 feet (975 m). Kruger Lake Camp is located in a picturesque setting along the lakeshore with a view across the lake of Indianpoint Mountain and only accessible by backcountry roads, by dog teams or snowmobiles. It consists of two log cabins, one serving as a dormitory, the other one as kitchen, dining room and staff-quarter. There is no electricity or running water and an outhouse is the only sanitary installation. This is the home of trapper Tim and his family and your stay here makes you feel like living back in the old days of fur traders, trappers and prospectors.
