Because Smoke Lake is adjacent to Highway 60, it has small powerboats and cottages on long-term leases - so you're not in the wilderness yet. There are no campsites on Smoke Lake.
Strong north-south winds can sometimes make paddling a real effort. Mollie's Island is a good rest stop.
- Canoe Lake from the north (either by portaging 355m or, if you are energetic, by canoeing via Bonita Lake, Tea Lake and Smoke Creek)
- Tea Lake, Smoke Creek, Swan Lake & Little Smoke Lake from the west
- Claude Lake and Ragged Lake from the south
- Grape Lake & Ouse Lake from the east
Points of InterestEdit
Part way down the lake is Mollie's Island,Open in Google Maps named after Mary (Mollie) Colson, a park resident from 1900-1945. A plaque, on the western tip of the island, honours her memory.
Also at the western tip of Mollie's Island is a beautiful S-shaped tree, reminiscent of the one in "Northern River", a famous Tom Thompson painting.
