With a long, cold, snowy winter behind us and sunny, warm spring conditions in the past weeks melting this snow-pack rapidly, you’ll have noticed nearby rivers (i.e. the Elk and Bull) nearing peak levels. As a result Lake Koocanusa is currently quite a bit higher than it has been other years at the same time in May. We are on track to for a summer with lake levels slightly higher than last year which is great news for boating. Check out our “Lake Levels” page for links to the most current predictions and flow updates for 2018.
Balsam Root are in bloom around the lake right now
We are thankful the hot, dry, fire-filled summer of 2017 is over. Please be mindful when having campfires whether in our campground at your site or out on Crown Land etc… small controlled campfires are currently permitted but make sure to put them out before going to bed or leaving the area. Fireworks are available at the store for your celebrations, be respectful of regulations, others and the environment when setting these off.
Looking for a fun summer job? Why not think of joining our team here at the store, we’re currently looking for a couple of people to join our staff (mid June – Labour Day weekend). Speak with Ev or Dano at the store and/or please email your resume and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you and please feel free to spread the word about this to those you think might be interested.
It’s a gorgeous day at the lake, we hope you’re all having a great long weekend wherever you may be and look forward to seeing you out here again soon. 🙂
