Cathedral Lakes Lodge provides transportation services for campers staying in BC Parks’ two provincial back country campgrounds. The Quiniscoe Lake campground is a 5-minute walk from the lodge, and Lake of the Woods campground is about a 25-minute walk. The campgrounds are only accessible by foot via the Lakeview Trail (16KM) or by the lodge’s 4x4 vehicles. Secure parking is available at base camp at no charge when you book transportation with us. Due to limited seating trips must be booked and prepaid. We recommend booking two to four months in advance.
