    Description

    These exceptional 160 forested acres also possess over 1,200 feet of private lakeshore. The southern property line passes through the upper third of this 16-acre lake. This yet-unnamed lake straddles one other acreage to the south, limiting access to only the two properties. Crown land surrounds the remaining east, north and west property lines, providing easy access to additional terrain for hunting and exploration.

    The land is predominant level with a gentle grassy slope down to the lake. This lakeside area would be an ideal building site for a recreational cabin, permanent residence, or a hobby farm. However, there are plenty of other building sites throughout the land. This property does not have services and would suit off-grid living. Logged many years ago, the area now has a healthy, naturally regenerated forest.

    The Hamlet of Aleza Lake is 2.5 km from the main road. Eaglet Lake is upstream from Aleza Lake with Hansard Lake downstream. All three lakes are well known for their rainbow trout and lake char. This chain of lakes empties into the mighty Fraser River under 10 km away. Prince George is a 67 km drive with all the amenities offered by a large city.

    Legal access is via resource roads or by neighbour agreement.

    Area Data

    Prince George

    With a population of 74,000, Prince George City is the closest and largest city in northern BC, referred to as the "Northern Capital." Situated at the Fraser and Nechako Rivers' confluence and the crossroads of Highway 16 and Highway 97, the city is the service and supply hub for one of Canada's fastest-growing regions. This city plays a vital role in the province's economy and culture.

    Prince George is the first stop on VIA Rail's spectacular Skeena route that takes visitors from Prince Rupert on the west coast through the middle of BC’s backyard to Jasper in the Canadian Rockies, with connections to VIA's national network of routes.

    Prince George's reputation as a volunteer city is alive and well in the community associations, sports organizations, and recreational clubs. There are all the cafés, art galleries, boutiques, and museums that a modern city can offer for the urban folks.

    Vegetation

    The vegetation on the property provides food and shelter for many animal species. Much of the property is covered in low lying marsh loaded with browse for ungulates and cranberries. The upper portions of the property contain spruce and balsam trees.

    Recreation

    Without even leaving the property, you can indulge in the tranquillity of this 160-acre playground. Wooded areas are prime to observe wildlife, birdwatch, hike, mountain bike, ATV, hunt, or simply relax in a hammock. The private lake is the perfect setting to paddleboard, canoe, or kayak. Having a dock would provide a paddling launchpad, a quiet environment to read a book, or, watch the sun rise and set.

    Mountains, forests, and lakefronts create phenomenal outdoor recreation within the Fraser-Fort George Region. Watersports, immersing oneself in the diverse natural lakes, rivers, ancient forests, mountains, and caves, provide unlimited opportunity. Summer or winter, there is plenty for the adrenaline seeker and those looking for more leisurely fixes. Hunting and fishing for moose or deer, rainbow trout, lake char, burbot and even sturgeon are highly sought after and rewarding. This area is chock full of wildlife and fish.

    Purden Lake Provincial Park

    To the south of Aleza Lake, this Provincial Park is nestled in the rolling mountains. This park is a densely forested upland with open areas on the lakefront. Walks along the shoreline, swimming and angling for rainbow trout/burbot are popular activities. This park's attraction is magnificent, along with watersports and many hiking/cycling trails and viewing areas.

    Purden Ski Resort

    Puren is central BC’s most extensive ski and board mountain for over 40 years. You can experience some of the best skiing and snowboarding in this area with over 1,100 vertical feet of skiing on dry powder snow, treed runs and uncrowded slopes.

    Evanoff Provincial Park

    The park is in the Hart Ranges of the Canadian Rockies. This park protects the nationally significant Fang Cave complex, which includes the ninth longest cave in Canada. Spelunkers in the caves are for the experienced. The park also provides an easily accessible destination for backcountry recreation and showcases picturesque alpine bowls, three small alpine lakes, and distinctive limestone pinnacles and ridges. Two separate trails give access to small alpine basins, with a connection over Fang Mountain.

    History

    The shores of Aleza Lake, from 1912, provide an interesting and provocative history. This small town originated with farmers and trappers who constructed a post office, small store, school, and church. The community grew with other services, a hotel, butchery, flour and feed storage. A poolroom, sports facility with a covered hockey/skating rink followed quickly behind. The 1930s saw a small restaurant open, a community hall, a wharf with changing rooms, a diving tower and a children’s pool. Prestigious balls and carnivals were well attended not only by the locals but by railway from Prince George. Today, there are some remnants. However, most of the town burned to the ground and covered in brambles.

    A channel of the Fraser River carved out the oxbow lakes, comprising westerly Little Lake, Aleza Lake in the center with Hansard Lake to the east. Little Lake was also called Hotchkiss Lake after Thomas and Louise L. Hotchkiss, the first homesteaders on its shores. Long after the family departed, their abandoned log cabin remained standing at the lake's western end. Aleza Lake's memorable features were the white-water lilies on the south shore and cranberry bogs on the north side.

    The Aleza Lake Research Forest is a 9,000-hectare outdoor research facility and working forest. This project provides research and education facilities and opportunities to groups for ecosystem and resource management studies. The program was established in 1924 and is still active today.
