Williams Lake

Set in the heart of the Frontier, Williams Lake has been the focal point of the Cariboo and Chilcotin regions since the turn of the century. Here you will find a relaxed, friendly atmosphere and ample opportunity for fishing, hiking and mountain biking. Explore pristine forests, lakes, and rivers in the temperate summer, and experience snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling in the winter. Williams Lake has retained its magical western frontier character while becoming the modern commercial centre and transportation hub of the Cariboo. Hometown hospitality mixed with a high-quality lifestyle make this an ideal place to raise a family, start a business or retire.
