Akamina Parkway Review

Take this winding 16-km (10-mile) road up to Cameron Lake, but drive slowly and watch for wildlife. It's common to see bears along the way. At the lake you will find a relatively flat, paved, 1.6-km (1-mile) trail that hugs the western shore and makes a nice walk. Bring your binoculars, because it's common to see grizzly bears on the lower slopes of the mountains at the far end of the lake. Severe flooding washed out parts of this road in spring 2013, and at this writing it was being reconstructed. The road is expected to reopen for the 2014 season, but call the park to be sure.
