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.
