    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, just 2 km from the house, can also satisfy your needs with a general store, fuel station, post office, a restaurant and many full service accommodations.

    Recreation

    This property is surrounded by outdoor recreation. You can enjoy the excellent fishing any time of year right from your front yard. You can also snow machine or ATV right from home.

    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.
