Crisp mountain air, blue skies and pine forests surround the picturesque highland community of Logan Lake. Recreational activities are the highlight of every season, from fishing and hiking to snowshoeing and cross-country skiing.
"Tslakan", a Savona Indian fur trader, had a daughter whose name was Anglicized as Anne Logan, and it is thought that Logan Lake derived its name from her.
The first mining prospectors arrived in the Highland Valley in the 1870s, and ranchers followed in the early twentieth century, settling in nearby Mamette Lake and Meadow Creek. It wasn’t until 1970 that the town of Logan Lake was founded, to house the workers of the newly opened copper mine. The Lornex mine eventually became Highland Valley Copper, which remains the town’s biggest employer.
Located inside a huge mining shovel that sits next to a 235-ton ore truck, this Visitor Information Centre is a great place to start your tour of Logan Lake. The centre’s friendly staff will assist you in your discovery of the area, and is open from mid-May to mid-October.
Highland Valley Copper is one of the largest open-pit copper mines in the world, so large that it is visible from space! Such a mammoth undertaking requires big machinery, and a tour of the mine is an unforgettable experience. The tours are FREE and the duration is approximately 2 1/2 hrs. NOTE: the tours are unavailable to children under 12 years, due to safety restrictions. Daily weekday tours run from the end of May to August.
Situated on Highway 97C, the lookout has signage detailing First Nations and mining history within the valley. Don’t forget your camera!
Watch a local artisan at work. Sculptures, tiles and stoneware are just a few of the beautifully handcrafted items on display for purchase.
The Gold Country GeoTourism Program is an ideal activity for friends and family to enjoy while exploring the beauty of the Logan Lake area. Historic and current mining sites are just a couple of the intriguing cache locations awaiting your discovery.
This nine-hole, par 72 course is ideally situated to allow golfers to enjoy Logan Lake’s beautiful scenery. With lush fairways and challenging terrain, Meadow Creek Golf Club is a golfer’s dream. Deer and bears are also fond of the environment, and are occasionally sighted on the course. After your game, relax in the licensed clubhouse and enjoy a bite to eat on the outdoor patio. Open from May to October.
Disc Golf Course
Try your hand at Disc Golf! Disc golf courses are growing in popularity throughout the province. Similar to golf in course layout and scoring, players 'toss' special discs at a basket while navigating various challenges. The Pro course length is 5195 feet with a 290 feet tee and the Amateur course length is 1919 feet with a 179 feet tee. This is a free activity, and is located off of Chartrand Avenue in Logan Lake at the Copper Ridge Disc Golf Course.
This scenic trail meanders around the lake, and patient observers might be lucky enough to spot a muskrat emerge from the water, or a bald eagle perched on a ponderosa pine. Along the trail is an artificial trout-spawning channel where blackwater rainbow trout can be seen spawning in May. The nearby Duck Pond has a viewing deck perfect for witnessing this serene natural habitat. There are over 30 lakes in the area teeming with fish. Most of the lakes have camping facilities, and many of the resorts in the area offer boat and cabin rentals.
Other activities include hiking, biking, tennis and ATV riding. The Bike Skills Park situated behind the lake near the golf course, was designed by freestyle mountain biker Jay Hoots, and has something to offer for all abilities.
In the winter, try cross-country skiing on 36km of groomed trails that are open from November to April. The conditions around Logan Lake produce ideal powder for snowmobiling. For trail conditions and maps, visit the Logan Lake Snowriders Association website. Try ice fishing on the lake, or push a broom at the curling rink.
Nestled among an open stand of spruce, fir and regenerating young forest, Lac Le Jeune Park appeals to campers and anglers seeking an easily-accessible getaway spot. The park offers a diverse assortment of recreational activities including swimming, fishing, boating, hiking, biking, and nature appreciation. The campground serves as a base for recreational use at both Stake and Walloper Lakes. The park sees high use during the summer season. During the winter the area is used for cross-country skiing with no vehicle access.

This is a chance for hockey lovers of all ages to compete on the frozen lake.
