Muncho Lake

View Accommodations

Muncho Lake is primarily a highway services community, consisting almost entirely of travel and tourism-related businesses such as lodging, game outfitting, restaurants, gas stations, and fishing outfitting. The community is within the Provincial Park and on the south side of the lake of the same name. The landscape of the region is very beautiful and has become a popular spot for tourism in Northern BC, despite its remote location.

The Lake itself is renowned for its jade green colour and extends over 12 km (7.5 mi), with the majority of the highway following its shoreline. This deep, cold glacier lake is a haven for fishing and boating and is a key launch point for many of the region’s vacation activities including camping, fly in fishing, hunting, remote cabin stays, flight seeing tours, and horseback tours within the Muskwa Kechika Management area.

Location

Located at Mile 462 along Highway 97, the Alaska Highway. It is 245 km (150 mi) west of Fort Nelson.

A Step Back in Time

European discovery of the area did not occur until the late 1800s, when trappers, traders and explorers passed through the area. It wasn’t until the building of the Alaska Highway, that the face of Muncho Lake changed dramatically. There are still remnants of the construction features, such as wooden culverts and corduroy roads within the park.
