Waterfront Property for Sale East Shore Kootenay Lake BC
East Shore Kootenay Lake BC is surprisingly, a little-known treasure. Maybe it's because it's off the beaten tourist
routes. Kootenay Lake is relatively undeveloped and is in South Eastern British Columbia. Its thickly forested
mountains and pristine waters provide solace to the souls of residents and visitors alike. There's plenty to do year
round in the East Kootenays. Whether you choose to hike, golf, kayak, or just relax on a sandy beach, you'll find
yourself surrounded by almost unbelievable beauty.
Kootenay Lake BC
Kootenay Lake, the largest natural lake in southern British Columbia, is bordered by the the Selkirk Mountains to the West and by the Purcells to the east.
Kootenay Lake is 63 miles/100 km long in the South to North direction and
averages 400 plus feet in depth and is considered to be a fjord-like lake. Two
rivers feed it, the Duncan River at the north end and the Kootenay River at the
south. Kootenay Lake is considered to be in part, a widening of the Kootenay
River. Kootenay Lake drains from it's middle through the West Arm (21 miles/34
km long in a westerly and southwesterly direction from Balfour to Nelson) and
eventually pours into the Columbia River system.
Prior to the 1800s, the Lower Kootenay Indians were the sole inhabitants of this
resource rich land. They came to the lake to seasonally to collect huckleberries
and catch Kokanee salmon. In the earl 1860s a few European settlers began to
arrive and settle on the land. In the early 1900s, the CPR started an
advertising program touting the area as a great oasis for farming and growing
fruit orchards, and a significant number of English settlers were lured to
Kootenay Lake. Apples, strawberries, and especially cherries were and are the
most successful fruit crops.
The many parks and wilderness areas sprinkled about Kootenay Lake mean the area
is a fabulous natural playground. Tree lined roads and mountain trails provide
access to exceptional hiking and mountain biking, and the large freshwater lake
offers all kinds of water sports. Many lodges, resorts and campgrounds are
located on the shores of the lake.
The Kootenay Lake region is a 4-season sports and recreation destination.
Real Estate on Kootenay Lake BC is still relatively reasonably priced.
