Watch Lake Lodge and Guest Ranch
in the South Cariboo, BC, Canada

Watch Lake Lodge is situated at the "T" corner on Watch Lake Road. The lodge was built in the late 1920's and was originally a hunting & fishing camp. The Horn Family have owned it since 1950 and not many can say they know the area as well as Dimps who has lived her whole life right here at Watch Lake!

Dimps & family offer a very unique vacation experience where you draw your own water and chop your own wood.

 

Generations of customers have enjoyed their stay at Watch Lake Lodge & many have formed very special friendships with each other at their "home away from home"!

There are 12 rustic cabins, 8 campsites for tenting & campers, a swimming area, row boats and a small confectionery store (the "Trading Post"). At the Trading Post you'll find postcards, pop, ice cream bars, souvenirs, etc. Other supplies like groceries can be purchased at a small store located near-by or by driving to 70 Mile or 100 Mile House.

(A dude ranch for the family)

Watch Lake is located 20 miles East of 70 Mile House in the heart of the historic Cariboo. It is approximately four miles long at an elevation of 3500 feet in forest of mainly fir, jack-pine, and poplar with many natural grass covered clearings. See Map of Watch Lake

The area has innumerable lakes and streams and low tree covered ridges. A considerable portion of the region is cattle ranching country. There is lots of room to breathe clean fresh air, to stretch and feel free.

Watch Lake is only 20 miles from 100 Mile House - a modern community with shopping and laundry facilities, a hospital, as well as a variety of recreation facilities. See Map of Area

The climate is usually warm and dry during the summer, and the evenings are quite cool.

WHAT TO WEAR:
It is unnecessary to bring a large wardrobe. Light cotton shirts and jeans for day and flannel shirt, light sweater and a windbreaker for evening. English or Western riding boots are a must for riding. Shorts, bathing suits and sneakers for other activities.

Your pets are welcome.
