Anyone done any canoeing/kayaking at Mount Robson Provincial Park?

I'll bring this topic back to light. Any of our BC/Alberta paddlers familiar with the Mount Robson Provincial Park area? Should I bring our canoe for our week in the area or should we focus on biking and hiking instead?

We are heading west in a few days camping at Mount Robson PP with my wife's cousins and their families. Any paddling we do will just be short day trips, and unless I haul the boat trailer, there would only be the one canoe in the group. We can throw the canoe on the roof pretty easy, but I don't want to bother if we are not going to make much use of it. But if there's a "must do" place involving paddling, then we'd bring it along.

I would expect the potential for sudden winds and darned cold water.

Cheers,
Bryan

Bryan,
Seeing as how no one else has chimed in, here are my two cents worth:
I don't think that there are any river possibilities except Class 3 and up whitewater but I could be wrong. The Miette River in Jasper has some possibilities as does the Fraser below Tete Jaune Cache.
Yellowhead Lake makes for a nice, few-hour tour. Moose Lake would make me very nervous because of the cold water and the narrow mountain valley. I don't think there are many other lakes close by.
FWIW

Thanks Ralph. I think due to very limited space in the vehicle, and the fact that no-one else in our group will have a kayak or canoe, we are likely to leave the boats at home this time - maybe. I had looked at the maps and satellite images for the Fraser in that section and thought it looked promising.
Cheers,
Bryan
