Powder Point Territorial Park Day Use Area

Powder Point Day Use Area is located within the gorgeous Hidden Lake Territorial Park on the iconic Ingraham Trail, a little more than 45 kilometres east of Yellowknife on the eastern arm of Prelude Lake. 

Powder Point offers access to both the Lower Cameron River Canoe Route and the Powder Point Canoe Route. The first short canoeing portage takes rapids towards both the Lower Cameron River and the Hidden Lake routes. It can be seen across the lake if you look to your right from the parking lot. 

Back-country camping is permitted in Hidden Lake but there are no facilities and visitors are expected to bring out what they take in. The day-use area also offers a pleasant short hike to Cameron Falls. An interpretive display at the water's edge describes some of the features of the park that make it unique.
