Located about l3 kms. (8 miles) east of 70 Mile House, Green lake is an outstanding family lake. Situated amongst rolling hills of meadows, aspen and pine, this beautiful lake shines of Caribbean blue/green colors. With water that is incredibly warm, some of the best beaches in BC and 2 fabulous provincial park campgrounds, Green lake is a jewel for vacationing families. Boat launching, many resorts and dude ranches are found all around the lake.

Besides the swimming, waterskiing and horseback riding, Green lake offers many wildlife viewing areas along with free ranging cattle and even a buffalo ranch located on its south side. Rainbow and kokanee are found in the lake but it is not generally considered a good fishing lake, however, there is not a better lake to use as a base camp from which you can explore hundreds of tremendous fishing lakes in the immediate vicinity. There are more than 8,000 lakes in the Cariboo/Chilcotin region.

The aspen forests and open meadows provide some of the most delightful walking trails found anywhere. On a sunny day, pause for a few minutes. Sit down in the grass, close your eyes and relax; enjoy the rustle of the leaves, and the scent of chamomile and clover on the afternoon breeze.

If you're looking for adventure, ask directions then set out on one of the many back roads found in the area. You'll pass old homesteads, grazing cattle and deer, and countless little lakes. Stop for a picnic, watch the waterfowl or cast your fly line. And, don't forget to take some pictures! You'll want to remember this for ever.

All in all Green lake should be rated as one of the best family lakes in BC and should be high on your priority list when visiting the Cariboo - you'll never regret it and you'll find yourself coming back over and over again.

Special events:
Fishing Derby - An annual event. Fish in Watch Lake and Green Lake. There are lots of prizes big & small. Check with a local resort for details and dates.

Green Lake/Watch Lake Gymkhana. Held twice each summer on the second saturdays in July and August. The word gymkhana means "horses at play", and that's a great description. Both novices and experienced riders compete in skill testing and often outrageous events: the boot scramble, musical tires, barrel racing, stake races, keyhole races and more. There's concession stand and 'Bavarian Garden' under the aspens.

Bingos every Friday night in July & August at the Watch Lake Hall. Sponsored by the Womens Institute.

For details, stop at Watch Lake Lodge (456-7741) on the north shore of Watch Lake or the 70 Mile Store.
