11 acres on the west side of Moyie Lake. Approx. 685 feet of lakefront—steep/cliff side limits direct access to lake. Accessible cabin sites on large flat bench, perched up above the lake. Ideal for a hunting camp location or recreational cabin set up. Access via a FSR (seasonal access).
11 back country acres on the west side of Moyie Lake. Although the land fronts on the lake for 685 feet, direct access to the lake is challenging from the land as it is mostly steep/rocky cliff. The views are spectacular and access to the back country for recreation is second to none. This is the ideal parcel for someone looking to set up an off-grid cabin or camp for hunting, fishing, motorsports, etc. Property borders on Crown land, access via FSR/seasonable access.
The forest, as the aerial image shows, has some fire impacted forest.
The same owner owns the adjacent 90 lakefront acres to the south with excellent lake access and summer beach—also for sale for $1.2 million

The name "Moyie" or "Mooyie" is a corruption of the French "mouiller" meaning "to wet", so named by the trappers and fur traders who made their way through the sodden river valley. The French origin explains the pronunciation "Mo-yeah" which is still used today.
Discovery of a rich galena deposit in 1893, and the resulting St. Eugene Mine, brought the first settlers to this area in 1896. The developing mine influenced the expansion of Consolidated Mining and Smelting Co. Ltd. (later Cominco and now Teck Cominco) and the Crow's Nest Pass Railway. The mine and the town prospered until 1911 when production dwindled to the point where only small quantities of ore were being shipped to the Trail smelter. By 1929 the company closed the mine for good. As you stand in the village today there is little to remind you there was once a population of around 1,500, seven hotels, three churches and businesses lining both sides of Victoria St. (Highway 3/95). A few houses, the fire hall, St. Peter's Church, tailings pile and the crumbling foundations of the old concentrator are all that remain of Moyie in its heyday.
