Roberts Roost Quesnel British Columbia
14. Re: Cariboo Gold-rush Trail
Southern of Quesnel and Great fishing – Roberts Roost: Situated on Dragon Lake is a household possessed campground labeled as Roberts Roost – located on hwy 97 about 8 kms. South of Lebourdis Park. About 2.0 kms to additional Foods/Wal-Mart and Red Bluff Inn cold alcohol store so if you come to an end of conditions shops tend to be a quick drive away.
This website advertises mainly as an RV playground nevertheless they do have non-service campsites and did I mention the fishing with this lake is incredible (catch & release). There are laundry facilities, playground, boat and paddleboat rentals, and warm water (money) baths. Swimming, well not very great – some kind of itch mite when you look at the water.
North of Quesnel (about 12 kms) and nearer to hwy 26 (hwy to Barkerville) swimming okay: ten-mile Lake Provincial Park – stunning forested park with a fantastic sandy beach area and swimming. Use the hike thru the forest to the beaver dam – it is very interesting when it comes to children. 2 areas of campsites to select from - lakeside or forested areas. There is fishing here too (best time of the time is early evening) not as effective as Dragon Lake – you could swim here. Children’s playing field, fire pits, firewood, showers and flush toilets. No stores around if you run low on provisions might have to drive back in Quesnel.
10 mile Lake is just away from Quesnel and it is just under an hour’s drive to Barkerville. This area could easily be properly used as the campsite while you are taking pleasure in Billy Barker Days and touring Barkerville area through the day. You will not must break up camp at all.
Additionally - when you are thinking about going to Billy Barker Days the earlier you reserve any campsites for the week-end the better. It will be very busy.
Ten Mile Lake
Also – for your young ones – I remember slightly Candy shack on the way into Barkerville (about ten minutes to the drive on hwy 26) – called the Gingerbread Candy Land – additionally the snacks were extremely yummy in addition to woman that owned it had been a friendly sweet lady. I tried to find it on the web but could just come up with the target and phone number.
