    Located only steps from pristine Adams Lake this 43.6 acre property takes in gorgeous lake views. Located at the northwest end of the lake where the Adams River flows into the lake. The Adams River sockeye salmon run is one of nature’s wonders and is a sight to behold. Adams Lake is a hidden gem that very few people realize is so close to both the Lower Mainland and Alberta and without question one of the most beautiful areas in the province. When arriving at the property you'll notice the driveway is gated to the upper cabin providing additional privacy and security. Adams Lake Forest Service Road provides access to this property and in fact separates the property in half with approximately 20 acres on either side of the road. Please refer to the mapping section of the listing for a clear view on the layout of the property.

    The main cabin, which is referred to as the upper cabin, is approximately 16 ft. by 32 ft. in size. The cabin is completely surrounded by lush green forest. The main cabin includes a loft and an enclosed sun deck. The cabin is insulated and has a wood stove which keeps the cabin snug and warm even during the cold winter months. For cooking the cabin is equipped with a propane stove and a simple antique icebox. The bathroom includes a sink, composting toilet and bathtub with views of the surrounding forest.

    The lower level of the property has a large flat area that would be suitable for RV parking or camping. Also included on the lower level are three additional cabins all of the same design which are incomplete on their construction and ready for your finishing touch. The owner does have some additional cabin materials at the property that will be left for the new owner. The first cabin on the lower level is 12 ft. by 24 ft. with a four foot deck. All cabins on the lower level have metal roofs, doors and windows with screens installed. Each of the three cabins on the lower level are surrounded by beautiful Green Forest and located only a very short walk from Adams Lake and the river.

    Don’t wait to make this true nature’s paradise your own. Please call the listing REALTOR® today for more information or to book a time to go by for a look.

    Area Data

    Adams Lake is a large, deep lake. In fact it’s one of the deepest lakes in Canada. The southern end of the lake is approximately 30 km (19 mi.) north of the town of Chase in the Shuswap Country region of British Columbia. The lake's upper reaches lie in the northern Monashee Mountains, while its lower end penetrates the Shuswap Highland.

    The lake is 63 km (39 mi.) long and between 1.6 km and 3.2 km (1 to 2 miles) wide. The surface elevation is 404 metres (1,326 ft.) above sea level. The lake is very deep, it is the second deepest lake in British Columbia next to Quesnel Lake with a maximum depth of 500 metres (1,500 ft.). Water flows into the lake though many tributaries (most notably the Upper Adams River, Momich River, and Bush Creek). The water drains from the lake into the Lower Adams River which is home to a very large and famous sockeye salmon run which attracts many visitors to the region each year. From there the water flows into Shuswap Lake and down the Thompson River.


    Adams Lake is used for recreation year-round. Sport anglers commonly fish the lake for rainbow trout, Kokanee, lake trout and Dolly Varden. The lake is also used for swimming, pleasure boating and water skiing. The area around the lake is popular with campers and is home to a large variety of flora and fauna. During autumn and winter people hunt for game birds and big game such as mule deer, black bear and cougar.

    Adam’s River Sockeye Run
    Every four years British Columbia throws a three week long party with millions guests of honor . . . millions of migrating salmon. The 12 kilometre long Adams River will be the ultimate destination of as many as two million of the returning sockeye. In fact, sockeye salmon return to the Adams River every year. But, the migration that occurs every fourth year dwarfs the others, having reached as high as 3.6 million sockeye in 2002. With approximately 65 hectares of stream bed, the diminutive Adams River rates among the richest natural spawning streams in North America. It is also the site of the quadrennial Salute to the Sockeye, a mid-October celebration of the return of the crimson sockeye, once the BC Interior Native's most important single food source.
