Ghost Lake

If you are looking for quiet and serenity…. look no further than Ghost lake which is beautifully backdropped by Mount Matthew. Ghost lake is part of the Cariboo Mountains Provincial Park. There is no internet, no phones, basically there is nothing here but pure nature.  You can put your canoe or kayak in the lake and try your hand at fishing. Ghost Lake offers some excellent fishing for Sockeye Salmon, Rainbow, Kokanee and Bull Trout.  There is a small campground right near the lake so pack your tent or trailer and stay a while.
