4 Ways to Welcome Fall

Categories: Canoeing Whitewater
Get on the rivers!

Fall is a prime season to get back to paddle on the rivers. As the rain comes to Gold River, so do the paddlers. Our area has a variety of whitewater for any kind and level of boater.   Check out our post on canoeing and kayaking in the Gold River area for more details!

Take in the beautiful Fall colours

The alders and big leaf maples are changing into beautiful warm colours, so come enjoy them. Take advantage of a new look in the park. Elk River viewpoint, Crest Crags and our Bog Viewpoint are some great lookout areas that now have bright colours in the sea of green.

Take your dog for a paddle

November might not be the best time to put a skittish pet into a canoe but it’s a sweet time to paddle your old dog around.  Our cabins are pet friendly (pet surcharge applies).

Waterfalls and Rainbows

The locals know to check out the waterfalls during the November rains to  see the power of the bigger water cascading down.  The Elk, Lupin, Lady and Myra Falls are well worth a visit during a rainy spell, with other lesser known ones pouring down the mountains.  The mountains also bring shifting clouds and rainbows.
