Explore History:

Visit some of the many gold mining sites. Gold mining in the 1860's opened up this area. In the first half of the Twentieth Century, the Bullion Pit Mine was one of North America's largest hydraulic gold mines. A small gold rush settlement, originally known as "Quesnel Dam", turned into the small, friendly community of Likely. It was renamed in honour of John A. Likely, who was connected with the Bullion Pit Mine. Try your own luck at gold panning and you might stumble onto a placer mine operating in the area.

Take a trip to Barkerville Historic Town and enjoy re-living the past. Visit the old mining ghost town of Quesnel Forks.

Exceptional Trout Fishing:

Spend the day fishing on one of the many prolific fishing lakes or just soak in the natural beauty of the area.

Morehead Lake:

Morehead Lake was created in the 1890's as one of the water supplies for the Bullion Pit Mine. According to some sources, the name "Morehead" came from the mining term "more head", others say it came from a miner by the name of William Morehead, who lived near the mouth of Morehead Creek (the creek was named after him). It is a very scenic lake and the rainbows vary from pan size to about 35 cm in length.

The hill in the background is Polley Mountain with Mount Polley Mine. Bootjack Lake flanks it on one side and Polley Lake on the other side, two of the areas most popular fishing lakes.

Great accommodations in cabins for hunters, working crews. We are the closest accommodations to Mount Polley Mine. We house large groups.

Relaxing:

If taking it easy and getting in touch with nature is on your agenda, Morehead Lake is the place for you. Just sit outside the cabin and relax taking in the scenery and tranquility. You might see a bald eagle or osprey soar above and dive down into the lake to catch a fish, a blue heron glide over the water or listen to a grouse flapping its wings or the intriguing call of a loon. The abundant wildlife in the area includes black bear, moose, deer, coyote, lynx, beaver, loon, bald eagle, osprey, blue heron, humming bird and more.
