Quesnel City is evenly spaced within the Cariboo Region between the Northern Hub of Prince George and Williams Lake to the south. Just west of Highway 97, this route is the artery connecting BC through to the Yukon. This city is where the iconic Fraser and Quesnel Rivers merge on their voyage to the Pacific Ocean. Quesnel is the commercial centre for around 23,000 residents, serviced by rail, road, and domestic air travel.
Economic influences have historically centered on the timber industry; however, agriculture, farming, mining, and tourism also provide the vast majority of employment opportunities.
Ten Mile Lake Provincial Park, mere minutes from the property, lies in a transition area between the wetter Quesnel Highlands to the east and the dry Chilcotin Plateau to the west.
The Cariboo Region has thousands of lakes, ponds, and rivers, prime for fishing for rainbow, bull trout, and salmon. With its northern boundary traveling between Alexis Creek to just south of Quesnel, Wildlife Management Unit 5-14 is bounded by the Fraser River to the east and the Chilcotin River to the southwest. Gentle terrain and abundant logging access make this area attractive to hunters. This area is best known as mule deer country—however, modest numbers of moose and black bear are found. All four grouse species reside here in decent numbers, providing good sport for bird hunters.
Ten Mile Lake is a very popular recreational destination. A rewarding 2 km hike on the old railway grade along the lake also leads through the forest to a large beaver pond. For those that enjoy fishing but don't have a boat, a fishing dock was installed by the Fresh Water Fisheries Society of BC and the Quesnel Rod & Gun Club.
The BC Provincial Park offers multiple lakeside picnic areas, change houses, a playground, two large beaches with roped-off swimming areas, a boat launch, a reservable picnic shelter, walking trails, and great fishing. The Lakeside Campground features attractive treed campsites, showers, and flush toilets. While the Touring Campground offers sunny, open sites with 23 pull-through sites capable of handling even the largest RVs on the road.
Nearby world-class Bowron Lake Provincial Park provides a worldwide attraction to canoe or kayak the 116-kilometre chain of lakes and rivers. The park's magnificent scenery showcases mountain peaks, marshlands, and abundant wildlife.
Pinnacles Provincial Park is best known for its intriguing old geological rock formations, locally known as "hoodoos." This park showcases views of Baker Creek Canyon and the city of Quesnel.
The Cariboo was a land born of dreams—including dreams of gold and instant riches. In 1862, Billy Barker found gold on Williams Creek, a discovery that started a rush of adventurers from North America and worldwide.
Between 1862 and 1870, over 10,000 adventurous people traveled the Cariboo Waggon Road, and towns sprang up in their wake, from Lillooet in the south to the goldfields of Barkerville in the North.
10 Mile Lake and Provincial Park are named after the milepost on the Pacific Great Eastern Railway that stood here in the early 1900s. There is still evidence of the abandoned rail grade in the park; the tracks had to be relocated because of difficulties in crossing the Cottonwood River just north of the park.
