Beautiful Lac La Hache, BC

The lake is truly remarkable. It's plenty big enough to feel relatively alone during any given day.  Its waters are healthy, clear and perfect for boating, fishing and swimming.

Known to be One of the Warmest Lakes in BC!

Gorgeous Lac La Hache, home to Fircrest Lakeside RV Resort, is a recreational and retirement community in the Cariboo region of British Columbia. The community is located on the shore of Lac La Hache alongside British Columbia Highway 97 near the regional centre of 100 Mile House. The community of Lac La Hache offers a grocery store, gas station, bakery, ice cream parlour and a few restaurants - nearby 100 Mile House offers a full range of major retailers, restaurants and services.

 

The community's origin's date to the days of the Cariboo Gold Rush and the Cariboo Wagon Road, for which it provided an important roadhouse. Lac La Hache, or "The Lake of the Axe" as it translates to, was named, during the fur trade era, after the unfortunate incident of a French-Canadian voyageur who lost his axe head while chopping a hole in the ice. It is a town rich in history, as it sits along the Gold Rush Trail.  History plays an important part in this area and the Felker Homestead Heritage Site that provided services for those on their way to the goldfields is being restored. There is also the Lac La Hache Museum housed in a 1930s era log home with interesting exhibits and artifacts.
