Lone Butte & The Fishing Highway (Hwy 24) / Interlakes Area

Highway 24 is known as The Fishing Highway, and for good reason. One of three main routes in the province joining the Yellowhead (Hwy 5) to Highway 97, the Fishing Highway will take you along some of the best fishing lakes in the region. Hundreds of lakes offering a variety of fishing experiences will keep you busy throughout the year. The well maintained highway passes over the MacDonald Summit at 1312 m elevation and near Windy Mountain, the highest peak in the South Cariboo.

Not only fishing, but ATVing, snowmobiling and horseback riding are also popular activities. Several thriving communities include Bridge Lake, Sheridan Lake and Lone Butte; all of which offer services needed by travellers. For those visitors who like to stay longer, there is a range of accommodations such as waterfront resorts with campgrounds, RV sites and cabin rentals, guest ranches, B&Bs, and vacation homes.

Looking for a picture perfect nature experience? Try hiking one of the Buttes, or launching your boat into Lac des Roches. Summer, winter, spring or fall, you will not be disappointed in your visit to the Interlake's area. The many events and activities, extensive natural landscapes and unique getaways provide endless opportunities for the whole family.
