    This small Chilcotin community has a population of approximately 300 people and is the home of NHL star, Carey Price. The community itself supports a gas station, 2 grocery stores and 2 restaurants. It also offers a school, RCMP Station, Airline and a Post Office.

    Anahim Lake is surrounded by Coastal mountain ranges, tranquil lakes and expansive grasslands. It is well known for its incredible wilderness terrain, excellent ranching and its annual rodeo.

    Nimpo Lake

    Nimpo Lake has appropriately been named the “Floatplane Capital of B.C.” 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. Nimpo Lake is 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.

    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. Provincial campsite on Turner Lake (a 15 minute flight) a few kilometres from world-famous Hunlen Falls. A plateau surrounded by four mountain ranges and, reportedly 800 lakes within 80 kilometres!


    Anahim Lake is surrounded by an abundance of wildlife, hunting, fishing, trail riding, hiking trails and year round recreational outdoor activities. It can be referred to as the gateway to Tweedsmuir Park offering beautiful summer hiking trails and epic winter snowmachining.

It is known for its fishing because of it’s easy access to numerous surrounding lakes and the world famous Dean River. You can find endless opportunities to enjoy the outdoors in this vast area.

    Nimpo Lake is long, deep, and packed full of great fishing. As if the lake itself weren’t enough, it’s also part of the Dean River system, which in itself is world-class fishing. Hiking trails and cross-country skiing at Nimpo' community hall a block distant.

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