Fraser Lake


Fraser Lake (pop. 1,300) is known as the "Swan Capital of the World" for the hundreds of trumpeter swans which migrate there each November. Fraser Lake is a playground for water activities and fishing, where anglers can try their luck in the Fraser and Francois Lakes, or the Nautley or Stellako Rivers. Hiking trails begin right at the community's doorstep. Cabins and resorts on the surrounding lakes draw many to enjoy the beautiful scenery, nature and beaches. Fraser Lake's main industries are mining and forestry.
