The village of Granisle is built upon the shores of Babine Lake; the longest
natural lake in British Columbia. First built to support the copper mines
in the 1960's, it now depends on its location and recreational appeal
to attract residents and visitors.
Babine Lake offers prime fishing and boating plus providing a perfect
setting for all manner of water sports. The surrounding forested area
provides plenty of opportunity for hiking, hunting, camping and any number
of outdoor adventures. The advent of winter does not bring the community
to a standstill; a variety of winter activities from cross country skiing
to ice fishing and snowmobiling keep residents and visitors busy.
One of the most spectacular natural wonders close to the village is the
sockeye salmon returning to spawn in the nearby Fulton River Spawning
Channels. Along with the salmon you may be fortunate enough to get a glimpse
of a bald eagle or grizzly bear feeding at the river.
Whatever the season, the beauty and recreational opportunities of Granisle
and the surrounding countryside keep visitors returning year after year.
