Beavertail Lake

All camping has been stopped here, but there is a great day-use area for your use. Beavertail lake is located just off the elk river timber road. You head out of Campbell River on the Gold River highway until you reach echo lake. Turn right on to the e.r.t. road and travel for another 10 km until you reach the lake turn off to the picnic site and boat launch.

There is good access to Beavertail Lake for boat launching and some great fishing here. The campsite is well maintained and clean. The Lake is stocked with rainbow trout, Some are quite nice. The lake also has a natural run of kokanee, dolly varden, and cutthroat trout. These fish can get quite big. Trolling is the best way to fish this lake but spin casting or fly-fishing works well too. I have had great luck bottom fishing this lake. Bobber fishing from the rocky cliffs on the edge of the lake can be productive just at dark.

There are two good fishing spots on the lake, one is right alongside the ERT logging road, it has a dock, and lots of beach access, the downside to this otherwise beautiful spot is the noise and dust from traffic on the gravel road. If you take the beavertail lake road, it will take you to a beautiful spot to fish, look for the gate and walk in.

This is a very nice lake that is close to town and great for fishing. There is a great chance to see deer, elk, bears, or beavers here, as well as raccoons, pine martins and many types of birds, so bring your camera. You can take home some memories.
