From Blue River you need to take Shell Rd to access the 23 km rough gravel road up to the parking lot. That is where you park your vehicle and pick up a gear cart (included in your rental). Come down the 2.5 km portage trail and meet us at the Murtle Lake Lagoon at 11 a.m.

One of our Park Operators will be there for you to unlock your canoe(s) and provide life vests, paddles, ropes and a bailer and sponge. In case you need a third seat – just ask our staff.

Don’t forget to fill out a self-registration envelope at the Murtle Lake Lagoon. Method of payment is cash only. It is $5 CAD per person, per night (if you are age 6 or older).


If you are more than half hour late you may be considered a “no-show”. Our staff who deliver your canoe(s) are the same people who look after the campsites and trails on Murtle Lake. They need to be out patrolling and maintaining facilities. Being late for pick-up or drop-off time means they are not available to do their primary job.
