When making your way west along Highway 16, I would definitely make a stop in at the Fraser Lake Visitor Centre and Museum. I've always driven straight through Fraser Lake, but this time I decided to stop and I am glad that I did. The staff at the visitor centre are extremely friendly and helpful and their museum was a really great opportunity to see the history of the Village of Fraser Lake and get a background on the region.
There was a great selection of old primary document sources dating back many years, some from the early 1900s and earlier. A great selection of magazines, newspapers, pianos, logging supplies, and this really interesting breathing apparatus (pictured).
Of course what not to forget is what Fraser Lake is most famous for, being the Swan Capital of the World! So if you find yourself in Fraser Lake, make the stop in at the visitor centre and museum and spend some time learning about the past while getting information to plan future adventures!
