Logan Lake

Logan Lake is a picturesque town located in the heart of the Highland Valley. It sits at an elevation of 1,067m/3,500ft and is surrounded by forested rolling hills, punctuated with serene lakes and rivers. Nearby Tunkwa Provincial Park has two trout-stocked lakes within in its boundaries and is known as one of the top ten provincial rainbow trout fisheries. Hiking, kayaking and canoeing, horseback riding and swimming are all available. Lac Le Jeune Provincial Park is a popular destination in the summer. This park offers various recreational activities including swimming, fishing, boating, hiking, biking, and wildlife viewing. Logan Lake itself provides opportunities for recreation such as walking the lake path, trout-spawning channel, hiking, biking, bike skills park, golfing and in the winter snowmobile trails. Take a tour of the Highland Valley Copper mine, one of the largest open-pit copper mines in the world and stop at the Highland Valley Copper lookout for stunning views.

Location

Logan Lake is situated in the heart of the Highland Valley, 60 km (37 mi) south of Kamloops via the Coquihalla Highway (Hwy 5) and Highway 97C, and 47 km (29 mi) northwest of Merritt via Highway 97C.

A Step Back in Time

Traditionally a company town, Logan Lake has developed into a dynamic, growing community.

The history of the Highland Valley dates back to 1871 when mining prospectors were common to the area. In 1970, the mining companies, to develop an organized town for the mineworkers and their families, initiated the construction of housing and support facilities.

In November 1970, the Village of Logan Lake was incorporated. For the next decade the Village developed quickly; by 1981 there were 2,637 residents, 1,015 dwellings, schools, a shopping mall, a recreation centre and a number of other services. In June 1983 Logan Lake was incorporated into a District Municipality.

The recession in the 1980s saw an outflow of residents from Logan Lake, resulting in vacant housing stock. The District of Logan Lake was very successful in an advertising campaign in the late 80s that drew many people from the Lower Mainland.
