Invest in Loon Lake

British Columbia, Canada



Loon Lake is home to a small group of commuters who work close by, and also attracts early retirees seeking a tranquil environment. The community is located 40 kilometres southeast of one of the region's major city centres, Clinton, off of Highway 97.

Loon Lake is a resort and vacation/retirement community. The services at the lake include four resorts with stores, boat rentals, gas and propane, RV parking and camping, and a volunteer fire department. A few offer wireless internet connection. There is a public boat launch at the east end of the lake.

The lake is one of the top ten naturally stocked lakes in North America supplying rainbow trout year round.

The Marigold Fishing Resort is a long established resort on the lake and offers a well-stocked general store, fuel and a propane fill station for bottles and vehicles. The oldest still operating resort is the Evergreen Fishing Resort at the west end of the lake established in the mid 1930s, followed soon after in 1938 by the establishment of the Loon Lake Resort and the White Moose Resort. Several resorts established in the early years are no longer in business.

Naturally, tourism continues to play a significant role in the local economy, with tourists traveling great distances to experience the abundance of outdoor recreational activities throughout the area.
