Almost an inlet unto itself, Powell Lake is the largest in the Sunshine Coast collection and offers endless vacation possibilities!
A full scale boat launch and marina make bringing your motor craft very easy, and allows you access the full extent of this massive lake. Goat island – situated smack dab in the middle – is a great place to stop for a snack or stretch your legs. It also makes for an even more interesting paddle if your chosen mode of transportation is self-powered. You will also spot a few floating cabins dotting the shoreline, many of which are available for rental (we highly recommend!).
This lake is ideal for:
- water skiing/wakeboarding
- paddle sports
Nearby amenities: The Shinglemill Pub and Bistro is your closest stop, offering lakeside dining a gorgeous view to match. They also include the marina. The main centre of Powell River – where you can find additional dining options, gas, groceries, and multiple shops – is approximately a 15-20 minute drive from the marina in the southbound direction. In the northbound direction, Mile 0 of Highway 101, along with renowned Nancy’s Bakery and a stunning harbour that is the gateway to Desolation Sound, Lund can be reached by another 20-30 minute drive. *Situated on the North Coast, you must take a ferry from either Earl’s Cove to Saltery Bay, or Little River to Westview*
