  • Site Description: In June 2014 the Supreme Court of Canada granted the Tsilhqot'in Nation a declaration of aboriginal title over a certain area. This recreation site is within the declared aboriginal title area. The Tsilhqot'in Nation has declared that recreation sites within the title area remain open for visitors, and that activities such as canoeing, hiking and light camping are encouraged in the area. All visitors must adhere to the Visitor Protocol (http://xeni.ca/Home/VisitorProtocols/tabid/68/Default.aspx) and Nemiah Declaration (http://www.tsilhqotin.ca/PDFs/Nemiah_Declaration.pdf). In addition to being available online, both documents can be viewed at the welcoming signs into the Xeni Gwet'in caretaker area. Hunting for all species is not permitted within the title area, however fishing remains open to visitors with a valid BC freshwater fishing license. For further information please contact the Tsilhqot'in National Government (www.tsilhqotin.ca). This picturesque camping spot is set amongst mature Douglas-fir trees overlooking the turquoise Tatlayoko Lake, and offers impressive views of Niut Mountain. The recreation site has a boat launch and is a popular fishing destination. Windsurfers are also drawn to the site as Tatlayoko Lake is prone to strong winds.

  • Driving Directions: About 1 km east of Tatla Lake, turn south off of Hwy 20 onto the Tatlayoko Lake Road. Travel 35.5 km south on the Tatlayoko Lake Road and turn right into the recreation site. The recreation site is located at the north end of the lake on the eastern shore.
