Kayaking on Buntzen Lake
Buntzen Lake, situated in the Buntzen Lake Reservoir Park, is formerly known as Lake Beautiful because of the awesome scenery. The lake is, however, a reservoir on BC Hydro’s power grid and is fed by rushing mountain streams. In fact, if there is snow on the North Shore Mountians, Buntzen will be icy cold once away from the shallows near the beaches. The lake is extremely popular for paddling and kayaks, which can be rented near by. Fishermen are common along the shoreline and often found hogging the docks. It is located less than an hour from Vancouver, just north of Port Moody and northwest of Coquitlam.
