Are you talking Elbow lake on the Grass River?

Default Re: Elbow Lake?

Was there last year and camped on one of the islands past the elbow midway down the lake. When you first get in, the first 3 or 4 sites on the right-hand side were closed last summer due to recent bear activity. Not surprising really as there are some real pigs that manage to get up into Elbow. I just don't understand how people will leave cans, fish guts, 1/2 empty bait containers, and cut down green saplings for firewood......stuff won't even burn properly.

The lake itself is pretty nice but can get windy due it's east-west position. We usually go further into MacGregor or Snowshow. Some decent fishing as well. Good luck if you go.

I have camped many Times in MacGregor go about 5-10 minutes (paddle) past the falls and camp on a Island on your right as you are paddling east. It is quite sheltered and a perfect location ( more difiicult for yogi and boo boo to visit) . camping at the falls at each end is nice, but has seen bear activity at times.

Thanks for the imput guys!
Yeah, some peoples lack of respect for the earth and others safety baffles me
I have been canoeing for a few years now; the Assiniboine in the western half of the province, a bit in the Whiteshell and a few lakes out in Alberta. A couple of my buddies are novices to canoeing so I hoped that the Elbow/Bird route wasn't too hard for the group, myself not having done it before. About how long would it take for 4 goofs in a couple of canoes to do the Elbow route and back to Tulabi Falls realistically?

Count on about 4-5 hours to get to the first camping spots on Elbow.
