Bare Lake Wilderness Resort is located 42 air miles north of Kamloops British Columbia, Canada and is in the protection of Bonaparte Provincial Park. We are proud to offer the world famous fighting Kamloops Rainbow trout with access to seven pristine lakes and fish up to 8 pounds. Our resort is serviced by helicopter out of Kamloops and enjoys the privacy and solitude of the true Canadian wilderness.
Bare Lake receives it’s name from a local volcanic plug which is partially treeless. This ancient volcanic activity has also provided the lake with a pumice base which generates exceptional growing potential for the flora and fauna so necessary for great fishing. In 1940 a local bush pilot by the name of Jim Marshal realized the potential of the area and started a wilderness fishing camp catering to the movie stars such as: Bing Crosby, Gabby Hayes, Claudette Colbert, Ronald Colman and Phil Harris. The camp has been in continuous operation since then with the present owners now being Darbein Saunders and Family.
The many pristine lakes clustered around Bare Lake abound with native Kamloops trout. The lakes are managed to provide the ultimate fishing experience. In order to preserve the excellent fishing in the area, size and quantity limits have been set on each lake; catch and release is encouraged. Fish are generally easy to catch by Fly Fishing only. There are clean safe rowboats on all seven lakes and motors are supplied on the three larger lakes.
With many meadows and pine forests surrounding these lakes the area abounds with unlimited subject matter for those who enjoy hiking, photography or painting. Some of the animals in the area are moose, deer, bear, beaver, lynx, cougar, wolf and otter. The wild birds include bald and golden eagles, owls, hawks, loons, osprey, sandhill cranes, heron and ducks. Wildflowers, berries and mushrooms flourish in the area.
The accommodations at Bare Lake are clean cozy cabins with all bedding and linen supplied. Cabins are cleaned each day. All of the cabins have bathrooms and there is also a central shower house. We have solar energy which supplies 110 volt power to all the buildings. Each cabin has a good wood heater with a plentiful supply of kindling and wood.
Family style meals, including our own baked pastries and bread are served in the central lodge. Meals are served ranch style ” ALL YOU CAN EAT”. Lunches are packed each day for those guests fishing outer lakes, guests fishing the home lake are welcome to come back to the lodge at lunch time. This enables you to have a hot drink, stretch those legs and maybe have a rest before hitting the lake again.
