Fraser Lake

The attractive lakeside community of Fraser Lake lies alongside the Yellowhead Highway, west of the city of Prince George.

The pioneer roots of the area’s history date back to the fur trade, with the establishment in 1806 of a fur-trading post by Simon Fraser, at Fort Fraser near the east end of Fraser Lake.
The modern day town was established in 1914, during the construction of the Grand Trunk Railway, and was incorporated as a village in 1966.

The east end of Fraser Lake is recorded as the site of the first cultivated land in British Columbia, while Fort Fraser is the site of the last spike of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway, now the Winnipeg-Prince Rupert line of Canadian National (CN).

Fraser Lake marks the eastern edge of the Lakes District, and is located in a land dotted with lakes, rivers, mountain ranges and valleys, where outdoor recreation truly knows no limits.

Today, tourism, mining, cattle ranching and the sawmill are the mainstays of the local economy.

Population: 1,354

Location: The community of Fraser Lake is located on the Yellowhead Highway in Northern British Columbia, 94 miles (150 km) west of Prince George.
