Invest in Westwold - Monte Lake

British Columbia, Canada



The community of Westwold is nestled in a small, rich farming valley about 55 kilometres southeast of Kamloops, just outside Monte Lake, which lies approximately 45 kilometres from Kamloops in the same direction.

Monte Lake is a recreational community located at the north end of the lake of the same name. It lies in a valley connecting the Thompson Country to the Okanagan region in the south-central Interior of B.C. The community of Monte Lake consists of a gas station and country store, RV camping sites, small ranches and farms and a transfer station which is operated by the TNRD.

Westwold is an unincorporated settlement in the Interior of B.C., and is a small farming and logging community. Interestingly, glacial tills near the townsite of Westwold have provided fossils from the Sangamon interglacial period 130,000 years ago.

There are a number of locally-owned retail shops in Westwold, ranging from cafes and diners to a local tourist attraction, the Country Christmas Store. There are also a number of turf farms throughout the Westwold and Monte Lake areas.
