Star Lake Resort

Activities: Fishing, Horses, Nature, Photography, Wintersports

Star Lake Fishing Resort is nestled on the edge of the Nehalliston Plateau overlooking the scenic North Thompson Valley and the friendly little town of Clearwater. The resort is ideal for fishing enthusiasts, family vacations, or quiet retreats. The majestic mountains of the world famous Wells Gray Park serve as a picturesque backdrop. The unspoiled wilderness, sparkling fresh mountain water, and virgin forests provide a relaxing vacation getaway.

At Star Lake Fishing Resort we offer five bright, clean, and spacious cabins, along with ten private campsites. Three of the five cabins are right on the waters edge, and all five have a fantastic view of the lake. Four of the campsites also sit on the waters edge, with three of these having private sundecks. Imagine sitting on your cabin veranda with the water lapping at your feet, and the only sounds you hear are the fish jumping, the fire crackling, and the mournful cry of the resident loons.

Star Lake Resort is a true "wilderness getaway". With our nearest neighbor being over 10 km. away, we offer peace, quiet, and relaxation. Of course if you are hooked on fishing then Star Lake Resort is the place to be. Star Lake is full of Kamloops Rainbow Trout, and has the added bonus of being surrounded by hundreds of out lying lakes. All full of trout! It's a fisherman's dream come true.

There is always lots to do in winter. Snowmobile or dogsled right from your cabin door. We now have snowmobiling and dogsledding tours leaving from Star Lake. With the snowmobile tours you can ride your own sled, or have one supplied. Other options include cross country skiing, snowshoeing, ice fishing and ice skating on Star Lake. There are simply miles of unused logging roads to explore.
