    Description

    Campbell Lake Ranch is a trophy ranch with more special attributes and layers of value than you can shake a stick at so we strongly suggest you ACT NOW. The only way to win and end up being the owner of a property like this is to buy it. You will search a very long time to find a property of this caliber within 4 hours of the Lower Mainland so close to a major community with everything you need just 30 minutes away.

    To sum it up briefly Campbell Lake Ranch is a 210 head working cattle ranch with 220 acres of irrigated hay land in an ecological paradise on a trophy fishing lake, major waterfowl flyway, and superb habitat for whitetail, mule deer and moose.

    It is an environmentalists dream with a unique wetland area, a healthy creek running through an environmentally sound riparian zone, over 4,880 feet of waterfront on pristine Campbell Lake plus frontage on White Lake a large beautifully timbered area and hay fields. Eagle and raptor nests provide plenty of opportunity to observe and study these amazing birds. There is more to this property than you think at first glance, we urge you to look carefully if you are looking for a special private retreat with a lot going for it.

    The ranch is a long established, productive working cattle ranch with a brand new 18,500 ft2 indoor riding arena, new 5,000 ft2 5 bay shop, 1,108 ft2 character ranch house, barn, shop, calving barn, corrals and outbuildings. It is 873 deeded acres in 4 titles, 2,680 acres of grazing leases and 210 head range permit. The property is fenced and cross fenced with established hayfields plus newly cleared and seeded hay fields and a number of Water Licences. Recent improvements include the riding arena, shop, extensive post and rail fencing, preparation and seeding of new hay land and improvements to the irrigation system.

    The many layers of value include 2 precious waterfront acreages. The 12-acre picture perfect parklike point jutting into the lake with over 3,200 ft of lakefront timbered in large Douglas fir, ponderosa pine, aspen and spruce is spectacular and the perfect place for a log or timber frame home. The adjacent 20 acres is also a trophy property with about 1,290 ft of lakefront and frontage on both sides of the point. Access to these properties is by way of a registered easement through the main ranch if you ever wanted to sell them separately.

    A dock on the inside of the point where the owners keep their pontoon boat makes lake access easy and it is ideal for access by float plane.

    The 160 acre branding field property to the north is a special property with open grazing, varied terrain and beautiful views forms an integral part of the cattle operation but could be sold separately if you decide to focus on hay production.

    Area Data

    Campbell Lake

    Campbell Lake is a narrow lake approximately a mile and a half long, and fairly shallow which often makes for good fly fishing. The lake is surrounded mostly with typical grassland vegetation. The campsite area is nestled in a stand of fir on the southerly shore is very nicely done with a number of good sites.

    Kamloops

    Located at the confluence of the South and North Thompson Rivers where you get to enjoy year-round outdoor activities including easy access to great skiing. It is a young, vibrant city which allows the best of everything both the city and the country has to offer only 3 hours from Chilliwack.

    Recreation

    Sandstone canyons, grasslands and evergreen timberlands play host to incredible hiking, mountain biking and camping. Kamloops is also a major golfing destination, with around a dozen courses close by. More than 100 lakes and two major rivers provide great fishing, kayaking, canoeing, rafting and tubing.

    In the winter, outdoor activities abound. Do some exploring on snowshoes or cross-country skis; take the kids tubing or tobogganing, or to an outdoor ice rink; or visit nearby Sun Peaks Resort for some downhill action. Want to go faster? Try one of several snowmobiling destinations. For those who'd rather take it slow, there are horse-drawn sleigh rides and many tranquil lakes for ice fishing and paddling.
