Burns Lake (population: 2,726) is a small community with much to offer in the way of beautiful scenery and choice of summer and winter outdoor activities.
Fishing, hiking, mountain biking, rock hounding, boating, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, and guide outfitting are just a few examples. The community hosts numerous festivals and events and is the site of the second largest Aboriginal Day celebration in the province.
The village is located at the heart of the Lakes District in the centre of the province, an area boasting 4,828km/3,000mi of lake shoreline. It's surrounded by nature, including some of BC's largest freshwater lakes, such as Babine Lake north of town.
Wildlife (including moose, bears and deer) can be spotted in the area, while farms and ranches are scattered through the outlying rural areas.
