Known to be One of the Warmest Lakes in BC!

Gorgeous Lac La Hache, home to Fircrest Lakeside RV & Cottage Resort, is a recreational and retirement community in the Cariboo region of south central British Columbia. With both small town and city amenities nearby, including two hospitals, you can rest easy and maximize your time making memories with family and friends.  The community is located on the shore of Lac La Hache less than 1 km off BC Highway 97 near the regional centre of 100 Mile House. This private lake is 18 km long and gets up to 155 feet deep, yet remains warm and clean.


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.
