Logan Lake BC adventures, things to do and places to stay. However, the Village of Logan Lake is a small lake community, resting up in a high elevation valley, surrounded by ranchlands, grasslands, wilderness lakes and wetlands. Therefore, officially, the Highland Valley village rests in the Thompson-Shuswap region of British Columbia, Canada on the shores of Logan Lake and focused around the beautiful Maggs Park.
The region around Logan Lake is decorated with many lakes surrounded by grasslands and ponds of wetlands. Some of the hiking lakes in the area include wilderness camping. Paska , Dairy and Face Lake all provide a good starting point for a hike, bike, and drive. Therefore there are many gravel roads and trails in the area leading to more lakes like Roper, Wyse and Dominic Lakes.
The Highland Valley region enjoys a good number of fishing, camping, boating and canoeing lakes too. Leighton and Tunkwa Lakes in the Tunkwa Provincial Park located north of Logan Lake are the most recognized lakes in the area for fishing and boating. Both Thompson - Okanagan lakes are stocked with rainbow trout and trolling is the fishing technique of choice. Tunkwa Park has hosted the World Fly Fishing Championships in the past.
During the winter months in the valley, after the snow falls and the temperatures drop, the community of Logan Lake transforms itself into a winter wonderland. The community lake, in the centre of town, becomes a skating rink and the massive network of trails in the outlying regions become transportation routes for people who enjoy cross country skiing, snowshoeing, ice fishing and snowmobiling.
A designated Logan Lake Snowmobile Route and XC Trail System is located just north of the village attracting groups of cross country skiers and snowmobilers to the region. The Logan Lake Snowmobile Route covers a large swath of land exploring around lakes like Bose, Wyse and Ware Lakes. The Logan Lake XC Ski Trails operate separately from the Snowmobile routes.
