Fawn Lake, Lone Butte

Lone Butte

Lone Butte is situated on the Fishing Hwy and the gateway to the scenic Interlakes Area of the Cariboo. It is known for its countless lakes providing great swimming, boating, and fishing. Open to the public, the community’s wooden water tower beside the railway tracks is one of the last existing structures of its kind in British Columbia. It was built, circa 1920, to service the steam locomotives of the Pacific Great Eastern Railway. Green Lake Provincial Park is nearby and the lake is wide and shallow and excellent for both summer and winter recreation. The undulating plateau and highlands around the lake have become a cross-country skier’s paradise and sandy beaches dot the irregular shoreline at five spots. Hikers will enjoy climbing one of the Buttes and the picture perfect nature experience. ATVing, snowmobiling and horseback riding are also popular activities.

Location

Lone Butte is located 25 km (15.5 mi) southeast of 100 Mile House, on Hwy 24.

A Step Back in Time

Lone Butte was once the Cariboo Region’s largest town and a busy centre for the ranchers who settled in the area from the early 1900s to the 1950s. At that time, Lone Butte was much larger than 100 Mile House, with stockyards, lumber mills and the Lone Butte Hotel, which dates back to the 1920s. The boom of gold rush driven prospectors, trades people and early pioneers eventually ran dry.

Today, Lone Butte is a quiet little town with restaurants, cafes, shops, and a BC Railway station.
