Pride of the Babine

The village of Granisle is built upon the shores of Babine Lake; the longest natural lake in British Columbia. First built to support the copper mines in the 1960's, it now depends on its location and recreational appeal to attract residents and visitors.

Babine Lake offers prime fishing and boating plus providing a perfect setting for all manner of water sports. The surrounding forested area provides plenty of opportunity for hiking, hunting, camping and any number of outdoor adventures. The advent of winter does not bring the community to a standstill; a variety of winter activities from cross country skiing to ice fishing and snowmobiling keep residents and visitors busy.

One of the most spectacular natural wonders close to the village is the sockeye salmon returning to spawn in the nearby Fulton River Spawning Channels. Along with the salmon you may be fortunate enough to get a glimpse of a bald eagle or grizzly bear feeding at the river.

Whatever the season, the beauty and recreational opportunities of Granisle and the surrounding countryside keep visitors returning year after year.
