Useful information for canoeists and hikers

It is important to keep a close watch on the weather while on Grand Lake and always be on the lookout for a suitable campsite.  A grove of black spruce in a reasonably level area will almost always have open areas covered with caribou moss, large enough to set up a 2 or 3-person tent.


Cape Caribou (picture above) is a dangerous area about a third of the way down Grand Lake on the left-hand side.  It has a high cliff for about 2 kilometres where it is not possible to get off the lake and the weather must be carefully checked before proceeding past it.

Left is a picture of my canoe taken in 2004, just before Cape Caribou, as I waited for the waves to calm sufficiently for me to attempt the passage past the Cape. Canoeists donít ever run the risk of crossing from one side of Grand Lake to the other.  The weather can change very fast and it would be fatal to be caught in the middle of Grand Lake in a canoe if the wind came up.  (Go to Page 11)
