Fish Lake (Cranbrook)

  • Type:Maintained

  • Site Description:This secluded site is located adjacent to an open grassy meadow on the east shore of Fish Lake. Well spaced Larch and Lodgepole Pine trees border the site and provide shade. The lake is small and shallow with a silty bottom. Marshy areas at the north and south ends attract moose to the lake, and fish and waterfowl are abundant. A trail leads from the site to the north end of the lake and proceeds along the creek which drains the lake. Evidence of past logging activity is evident in the remains of huge trees that litter the north end of the lake. A guide outfitters camp is also present on the lake and is visible from the recreation site. This may limit wildlife viewing opportunities during the hunting season.

  • Driving Directions:After crossing over the Bailey Bridge over Lake Koocanusa, take the second road to the left - Caven Creek FSR (West). Follow the Caven Creek FSR 32.5 km where the road forks. Take the right fork. At the 37.5km road marker turn right onto the Fish Lake FSR. The road forks at 0.8km - take the left fork. It forks again in approximately another 0.8km - take the access road to the left. The site is 600 m along a rough windy road.
