Crooked Lake Resort has been the host to hunters for over 50 years.  Many of the hunters who’ve joined us this year have been coming for over 30 years. A few can tell us stories about all of the previous owners and events that they remember fondly over the years.  Hunters are no different than any other group...most that we meet hunt ethically, responsibly and count on having the magnificent meat for their freezers. They tell me meat eaten from this area tastes so good because of the purity of what the animals eat.

The Bremner/Garratt family enjoyed some craft time at the lodge while they waited for the early hunters to come back. Then they all head out together. 


Hunter’s children who grow up with the education, morals and values of their parents will carry on those transferable skills and pass those on. Lessons taught well last a lifetime.

James is a butcher by trade and packages his deer on site. His mom Rina looks so proud and I'm pretty impressed. Imagine your butcher in your own backyard with the  freshest cut meat!  For anyone who eats meat but isn't sure about hunting...this sure convinced me, I know there is nothing added to these cuts.

There are few family pastimes as timeless as fishing. The sport is especially revered in British Columbia, a province crisscrossed with some of the best fishing spots in the world.

The Cariboo Chilcotin Coast region, sprawling from the Pacific Coast all the way to the Cariboo Mountains near the province’s eastern border, bears some of B.C.’s most bountiful destinations for family fishing getaways. From the shores of Lac des Roches on the popular “Fishing Highway” to the mountainous majesty of Crooked Lake, the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast is the perfect backdrop for your next angling trip. Here are five resorts that will check all of your family’s boxes.

Crooked Lake Resort
Sitting on the shores of picturesque Crooked Lake near Horsefly, this resort is tucked away at the base of the Cariboo mountain range in the eastern part of the region. From the well-traversed Trans-Canada Highway, Crooked Lake is accessed first via Highway 97, and then through a series of country highways past 100 Mile House. Boasting ATVs, hiking, and swimming, plus snowmobiling, ice fishing, and snowboarding in the winter, Crooked Lake has plenty of amenities, including a general store and boat rentals. With cabins, campsites, and RV hookups, it’s a prime spot to set up shop and fish for rainbow trout. Grab a canoe from the rental outfitters and take the family out for a paddle to catch some of the lake’s treasures.
