One thing the vast majority of visitors first discover when they visit the Knouff Lake
Resort, is the shear number of activities available. We are a 4-season resort, so no matter what time of
year you come for a visit, you're sure to find activities the whole family can enjoy. Besides
the obvious activities of camping and fishing, we have included a number of other activities for you
and your family to experience while visiting the resort.
Camping With cool summer nights and
warm sunny days, Knouff Lake is a favorite camping destination in B.C.'s interior. With over 5 acres
available for camping you can always find that perfect spot.
Cabin Rentals Most people would
never think of renting a cabin as an 'activity'. However, when you stop to think about it, a
few adventure-filled days spent in a warm, cozy historic log cabin is an activity. One that is
certainly not soon forgotten... definitely out of the ordinary.
Fishing Try fly-fishing or trolling
for our famous Kamloops Trout (Rainbow) in the spring, summer and fall. And don't forget about ice
fishing... it's becoming extremely popular and is an incredible experience suitable for the whole
family. Remember... "working is for those who don't know how to fish."
Boating Knouff Lake just
happens to be the perfect lake for boating. In fact, Knouff is probably one of the more picturesque
little lakes in all of British Columbia. There are so many choices... power and row boats,
canoes, kayaks, sailboards, sailboats, inflatables, belly boats, peddle boats and more. Just being out
on the water gives you an entirely new perspective on life.
Picnics You can always
find a picnic table and firepit for your family picnic. It doesn't matter what the season,
you will always enjoy a good picnic. If you need wood for a hot dog roast, clean, dry firewood is
available at reasonable rates... and don't forget the marshmallows!
Hiking With miles and
miles of wilderness trails at your doorstep, Knouff Lake Resort offers you the ultimate wilderness
experience. Enjoy a walk around the lake, or perhaps a longer hike back into the forest. Discover what nature
truly has to offer in your own backyard.
ATV's One very popular
sport today is ATV'ing and the Knouff Lake area offers some of the best and most exciting rides anywhere. From
a short 10 minute ride to an adventurous all-day 50 mile trip, there are dozens of trails that will
excite the ATV enthusiast. We do ask you though, to obey all applicable laws, stay off the grassed
areas of the resort, and show respect for your neighbors and other visitors by driving slowly and
quietly in to and out of the resort.
Bicycling Don't forget
to bring your bicycles... with all the trails available you'll be able to get all the exercise you need. And
how about a peaceful ride around the lake. You never know what you'll discover along the lakeside or in the
Swimming On those
long, hot summer days Knouff Lake can offer you a refreshing dip in the water. With so much sunshine in the
summer, the water actually warms up very nicely. Simply swimming from the dock, diving from your boat, or
swimming from one of the picturesque little islands is guaranteed to awaken and refresh...
Bird Watching Ideally situated on
the edge of a vast wilderness, the Knouff Lake Resort offers you a surprising opportunity
for outstanding birdwatching. No matter if you're a dedicated birdwatcher, or a casual visitor, this area
has an abundance of wildlife to view, photograph or simply enjoy. From loons, to eagles, osprey, hawks,
blue herons, pileated woodpeckers and an endless variety of other birds, there is so much to see....
it's just something you have to experience for yourself!
Ice Fishing If fresh
trout are to your liking, how about a little ice fishing? Just because the ice has frozen over doesn't mean you
can't enjoy delicious fresh fish for dinner. One of the more enjoyable activities the whole family can enjoy in
Snowmobiles During the
winter months the trails and backcountry offer the snowmobile enthusiast a true winter wilderness experience.
With a vast network of wilderness trails, the valley and mountain trails offer a perfect blend of relaxing or
Shoeing Another winter activity so often overlooked, but one that
offers an incredible amount of enjoyment (and exercise) is shoeshoing. Inexpensive,
healthy, and not to mention a lot of fun, this activity is certainly one that can be enjoyed by practically
anyone. It just doesn't get much better than this...
Cross Country Skiing
Cross country skiing is one of the more popular winter experiences in B.C. Here again, like snowshoeing, cross
country skiing is inexpensive, easy to learn, and one of the most exhilerating exercises to do. With miles and
miles of wilderness trails, as well as the ability to ski all around the lake during the winter, the
whole family will be talking for days on end about the great time they had...
Toboganning If you're
coming up for the weekend or even just for the day, don't forget the tobaggans. We have a few hills and
slopes around. And toboganning is not just for the kids either... even the more mature kids can have a
Skating During the
winter when the water has frozen over, we clear and maintain our own rink on the lake for the skating
enthusiast. Strap on the skates and do a few laps around the rink, or get together with family or friends for a
quick game of hockey. And yes... we even have our own "lambonie!"
