    Area Data

    Nimpo Lake sits on the Chilcotin Plateau surrounded by the Coastal, Itcha and Ulkatcho mountains. It is an excellent fishing lake, offering Rainbow trout of up to five pounds. Nimpo Lake has appropriately been named the “Floatplane Capital of BC” and presently has two air charter companies providing a host of services to the many visitors. It also has many private float plane docks around the lake. Sightseeing charters are very popular because so much of this scenic area is only accessible by air. There are many alpine and high altitude lakes in the area for camping, fishing, hunting and hiking. A day will not go by in the summer when you won’t see a floatplane take off of the lake carrying visitors on a flightseeing tour to the Turner Lake chain for a multi-day canoe trip, or for a day of fishing on one of the pristine fly in lakes.

    Nimpo Lake is also a favourite stop for many pilots flying on their way to the Yukon or Alaska who have become accustomed to refuelling here. Nimpo Lake is at 3,655 ft elevation with spectacular views of the Coast Mountain Range to the south. It is a relatively calm lake well known for its trout fishing, kayaking, canoeing or just drifting with a fishing line.

    The Nimpo Lake Community can also satisfy your needs with a general store, fuel station, a bakery, a restaurant and many full service accommodations.


    Many species of wildlife can been seen in the area including deer, moose, caribou, bears, wolves, cougars and several species of birds.

    Surrounded by the snow-capped Coastal Mountain Range, tranquil lakes and expansive grasslands, Anahim Lake and Nimpo Lake have year-round outdoor adventure opportunities including fishing, canoeing, hiking, horseback riding, bird watching, cross-country skiing, ice-fishing and snowmobiling to name a few.

    Nearby parks (Tweedsmuir provincial Park to the west, Itcha Ilgachuz Provincial Park to the north and Tsyl'os Provincial Park to the southeast) also provide incredible year-round, wilderness recreation terrain.


    First Nations Culture and History

    The South Carrier and Chilcotin First Nations inhabited Anahim Lake and the Interior Plateau centuries before European exploration. First Nations people in the area established routes known as the "Grease Trails" which stretch north to the Quesnel River, south to 100 Mile House and west to Bella Coola. Anahim Lake is named for Chief Anu x'im (pronounced "An-no-him"), meaning "the beginning of creation," or "the dawn of time when the first light came in."

    Ranching and Local Legends

    Alexander Mackenzie chiefly led European exploration. Soon ranchers, including local legends Panhandle Phillips and Richmond Hobson, settled Anahim Lake. These ranchers used the Blackwater Trail, which passes between the mountains, for transporting supplies. Today, the trail is used for horseback riding. Hobson documented the lives of ranchers in his bestselling books Grass Beyond the Mountains, Nothing too Good for a Cowboy, and The Rancher Takes a Wife. The CBC television series, "Nothing Too Good for A Cowboy" is based on these stories.
