Located on both shores of the Bulkley River, downstream of Houston and upstream of Telkwa and Smithers, this newly-developed 104-hectare Recreation Site welcomes users to a habitat that is unique, with its low elevation spruce and cottonwood forests and its ready access to the Bulkley. Trails and campsites are within walking distance of parking and a wide path allows canoeists to carry or cart their craft directly to the rivershore. A small chalet, with a wood stove, is a welcome retreat for recreationists. In addition, 10 km of cross-country trails are enjoyed by hikers, cyclists, skiers, snow-shoers, birders, and horse-back riders. Those passionate about fishing can also be seen, casting from the banks. A rustic camping area, with 11 sites (ranging in size from one tent to small groups) provides outhouses, fire rings, bear caches and picnic tables. In addition, there are 2 canoe pull-outs. The trail names, themselves, tell the story of these lands and water: Blowdown, Poplar, Old Mill and Plantation describe the forests; Peat Bog, Esker and Elk define other natural features and Widzin�kwa– Wet�suwet�en for glacial blue-green waters–highlights the traditional First Nations history on this site. This Site is operated by the Round Lake Community Association: www.roundlakebc.com
