Approximately 50km of good paved and gravel road from Highway 97
via the Forest Grove and Canim Lake South road. From 100
Mile House, travel north on Highway 97. At the top of the hill,
turn right onto the Forest Grove/Canim Lake Rd. Travel to the community
of Forest Grove. Turn right onto the Canim Lake Road. Approximately
12km from Forest Grove, just before arriving at Canim
Lake, watch for the Canim Lake South road junction, (this is
also called the 8100 rd.). Turn south (right) onto this road and
follow it along the south side of Canim for about 8 km (5 mi.) to
the Howard Lake road. Watch for the sign post. Turn south (right)
again and follow this steep access to Howard. It is approximately
3.5km of rough dirt and gravel road to the lake. This is a narrow
road with some steep grades, but passable with a 2-wheel drive and
trailer. This access road can be bad in wet weather.
& Campsites: There is a large Forest Service campsite,
complete with boat launch and picnic site located at this "trophy"
lake. Although the campsite is RV accessible the road is steep and
can some times be rough. There is a 10hp maximum for motors.
