Come join me for a weekend hiking and camping trip to
Miquelon Lake Provincial Park. Click here and here for more info. Please note
that I have never been here before but heard it's very nice.
Miquelon Lake is at the south end of the Cooking Lake
Moraine. Miquelon Lake Campground is well maintained and
it has several hiking trails that wind through the Aspen
Parkland and Boreal Forest along with several marshes that
are a summer home to over 200 bird species. This park is
another bird watchers paradise and a breeding ground for two
Gull species. It was once designated as a bird sanctuary.
There are excellent view points with floating docks that can be
found on a Marsh next to the campground.
The Miquelon Lake Campground offers a clean sandy beach,
picnic shelters, picnic tables, public phone, showers, water,
fire wood, swimming areas, play grounds, hand boat launch for
canoes and small water craft. Miquelon Lake is too shallow for
motor boats so no annoying boat noise. The lake is good for
swimming as the high salinity makes the water very clear and
keeps the algae down.
We will stay overnight and go hiking in the area. The trails are
located along the park’s knob and kettle terrain is a 10km
interconnecting trail system. Trail loops vary in length from
1.7km to 10km, providing many
opportunities for recreation and nature
IMPORTANT DETAILS REGARDING REGISTRATION
FOR THIS EVENT:To
register for this event, please sign up on the waiting list and
then pay for your spot as soon as possible. Once payment has
been received by the EOC, I will move people to the registered
list for the event in the order that everyone pays, and NOT in
the order that everyone signs up. This event will have a
maximum of 6 participants, including me.**
I have booked 2 adjacent campsites (site #s 270 and 271 - see
arrow on the map above) at the Miquelon Lake campground.
The 2 campsites are located side by side and we can park our
cars there (a max of 1 car/site but there is overflow parking at
the campground). The
maximum occupancy for each of these sites is 2 tents.
***Prior to the event, please e-mail me, answering the
1. Is there another person participating in this event
with whom you intend to share your tent with? Who?
2. Do you have a tent that you would be able to bring
to the event to share with others? If so, what is the capacity of
I will be assigning tenting partnerships a few days prior to the
even for those who need them. When assigning these
partnerships, I will do my best to place people of the same
gender in a tent.
GUESTS: If you have an adult guest that you would
like to bring along to the event, please have them register as a
member of the EOC so that they can sign up for this event on
their own. (This approach is easier for me. Guests cannot sign
up on waitlists for EOC events.)

The event coordinator(s) will help you to arrange a centralized carpool if you require it, but it's not guaranteed. Please DO NOT pay your driver en route. Passengers will pay the coordinator, and he/she will distribute the money to the carpool drivers. SO PLEASE BRING CASH!!! Approximate vehicle expense for this event is $26.00 (calculated at total Km * $0.20, effective Monday, May 20, 2013). This is based on $0.08/Km for maintenance, plus current gas price divided by 9. This cost will be multiplied by the number of carpooled cars, and divided by the number of carpool participants.
- Registration is NOT COMPLETE until you've signed up and paid by the registration cut off date. The money must be in the EOC's possession by that date. No exceptions.
- When a minimum group size appears, this is to let you know that the event will be cancelled with refunds to those who have already paid, if the minimum number of registered participants is not met. For any events where EOC needs a minimum number of participants, there will be absolutely no refunds of money if you or your guest(s) cancel.

any extra money left over will go to the EOC as donations.

cost/person for camping varies depending on the number of
people who attend this event.
For example, if 8 people attend, the camping fees +
