Interpretive programs are generously sponsored by Hope Mountain Centre, Skagit Environmental Endowment Commission and Manning Park Resort. Programs are free, but donations are gratefully accepted and help the programs continue.
The Boathouse is now open for the summer boat rental season! Stop by the Boathouse at the Lightning Lake Day Use Area 7 days per week from 9am-6pm (weather dependent) for boat rentals, snacks, drinks and ice cream!
We’ve got regular canoes, large canoes, single and double kayaks, rowboats and stand up paddleboards available for rental. Costs vary based on type of boat and the duration of the rental.
Anytime the boathouse is closed rentals can still be taken out or returned through the Manning Park Resort Lodge Front Desk.
Got a group that wants to rent 6 or more boats? Please book at least 72 hours ahead by email to make sure we have the staff on hand to help get you out on the water as efficiently as possible.

Yvette will share with us her detailed knowledge of the “traditional plants” used by First Nations for food, medicine, technology, and cultural practices. Scientists refer to this field of study as “ethnobotany,” which describes the many complex relationships that exist between humans and plants.
The hike will follow the Skagit River Trail, where the endangered Spotted Owl has been known to nest, and where Harlequin Ducks breed on the Skagit’s fast-flowing spring freshet. This route was traditionally used by the Stó:lo and other First Nations as a plant gathering and hunting area. In 1858, American gold miners built a trail up the valley to avoid British taxes. This trail is still in use today.
