Birkenhead Provincial Park – Camping Trip

August 14, 2016

Desiree and Kim coordinated a quick weekend camping trip this year instead of our traditional 5-6 day trip, we chose Birkenhead as it had an offleash dog area at the beach for Sadie to swim.

We ended up buying a new car a couple weeks before the trip, which came handy as it was AWD, and we had 17km of gravel road to get there.   We took roughly 4.5 hr to get there through Whistler, and Pemberton, on the way up we realized the day we return a triathlon would close down the highway between Whistler and Pemberton, which meant a 5.5 return trip the opposite way through Lilloette.

It was a beautiful campground in the middle of no where, in which we couldn’t see most of our neighbouring campsites just the way we like it.  Probably #2 next to Greenpoint on  my list of favourite places to camp.  Next time I’m going to bring a canoe and bicycle to hit the lake and trails.

The 2nd day there, we hit the trail which goes along the north side of the lake and returns down an old logging road, it extends further several km, which is probably best to be taken via bike.   But the main trail would also make for a great all-mountain/xc trail.   It was a quiet / peaceful couple a days, and a beautiful drive home.
