Wordtrails #18 Boya Lake
Boya Lake, located on the Cassiar highway (Hwy37) just south of the Yukon border is one of the most beautiful lakes in the area. The clear, blue water and white sand reminds one of Mexico, with the spruce trees, beaver lodges and cold water giving away the Canadian secret.
We spent two wonderful days camping at the Provincial park and kayaking this peaceful lake. An interesting shoreline, islands, evidence of beaver activity, lots of birdlife and fish visible under the azure water make it a kayaker’s dream.
The campgrounds were clean and spacious with many sites having access to the lake. There was also a dock for a few motorized crafts. Although these boats are allowed on Boya Lake, we did not find them troublesome to canoes and kayaks.
If you are heading “North to Alaska” or up to the Yukon be sure to leave enough time in your itinerary to enjoy this jewel of a lake.
