$100,000
New Listing
Size: 

70 acres on License of Occupation

Location: 

South of Chetwynd

Fish Species: 
Bull Trout, Rainbow Trout, Arctic Grayling, Whitefish.
Description: 

This is a great opportunity for someone that wants to take a few clients every year to get away from it all.  This License of Occupation (LOC) includes 4 separate sites south of Chetwynd: Bullmoose Creek, Sukunka River and two sites on the Murray River. This is a commercial recreation license allowing for a wide range of activities.  Two of the sites include well-kept log cabins.

Main camp is accessible by road and includes 68 acres with 15 to 20 of those acres being good horse pasture with a creek running through it.  This site used to include a hip-roof barn and corrals, however, they are in disrepair now.  The Sukunka River site is also accessible via road (wall tent site), whereas the other two sites (cabin sites) are only accessible via four wheeler or horse.

On the license you also have access to a large area around Bullmoose Creek, Sukunka River and Murray River for your recreational use.  Because this LOC is on a commercial recreation license and does not specify a particular activity, the possibilities are abundant for what you could do.  The past owner used the LOC for hiking trips, horse pack trips, and float trips.  Bring your ideas and make it your own!

Nadina Mountain Provincial Park

Nadina Mountain Park encompasses an isolated granitic mountain rising up from the rolling terrain of the Nechako Plateau. The mountain is a unique and dominant feature on the landscape and is theorized to have been a refugia during the last glaciation. Unique rock formations include large granite pillars. Heavy forest below gives way to an expansive alpine tundra on the summit plateau.

A significant population of mountain goats make Nadina Mountain their home. Tufts of goat hair are to be found on rocks along the route to the summit and viewing opportunities are plentiful. Other species commonly observed in the area are black bear, ground squirrels, marmots and deer.

Warburton Bay Fishing Lodge located in the Arctic Barren Lands

#955
$195,000
New Listing
Size: 

3.3 acres on Crown Lease

Location: 

Warburton Bay on MacKay Lake: 135 miles NE of Yellowknife, NWT

Fish Species: 
Lake Trout, Northern Pike, and Arctic Grayling
Description: 

Have you ever dreamed of owning a fishing lodge in the Arctic Barren Lands?  Fishing all night under the midnight sun?  Well, this is your chance!

The fishing is something you will not forget in your lifetime – this is some of the world’s finest lake trout, northern pike and arctic grayling fishing.  A small river flows into the bay beside the lodge and is full of arctic grayling; the structure of the big lake, surrounded by hills and valleys, is home to giant lake trout and the grassy bays are full of monster northern pike.  MacKay Lake is 100 miles long affording endless fishing spots to explore and multiple bays to choose from in inclement weather. The fishing is as you would expect in a remote fly-in Arctic fishing camp, in one word, unbeatable. 

Warburton Lodge is located on MacKay Lake 135 air miles NE of Yellowknife.  Warburton includes a main lodge complete with fully equipped kitchen, dining/lounge area, staff bedroom, washroom with hot shower and flush toilet.  There are also 3 guest cabins, 3 staff cabins, workshop, generator shed  (with a main and a back-up) and let’s not forget, a double bay outhouse.  Warburton can accommodate up to 14 guests at a time.     

This lodge is located in the barren lands surrounded by Arctic wildlife including: caribou, muskox, wolves, tundra grizzly and nesting bird migrations.  The migration of the caribou and muskox are something to see.  The migration of the Bathurst caribou herd is one of the last remaining, true spectacles of nature.

The midnight sun warms the barren lands through May/June /July and the aurora becomes visible as darkness creeps back, in mid-August.  The lake begins to freeze in October and is not ice free until June/July when the midnight sun warms the barren lands again and the geese, swans and thousands of nesting birds return to the Arctic to have their young.

This lodge has year round access due to being along the Tippit to Contwoyto winter ice road that services the diamond mines.  This allows for cheaper transport of big items if needed.  If wanted you could also use the lodge in the wintertime – it would be a great time to view the aurora!  Warburton sits directly under the aurora oval providing for some of the most spectacular aurora displays on earth.   

The lodge hasn’t been actively run in the past few years, however, the Arctic’s dryness is not harsh on buildings like in other areas of Canada.  The camp has also been maintained and is ready to go.  The workshop is full of a variety of new and used motor and engine parts, tools, etc.  Everything is already there to run the lodge, so come on in and bring your clients! 

Travel to the barren lands, the land of the midnight sun and home of the Aurora Borealis – unchanged wilderness since the beginning of time.  Come experience the magic of the north!      

*A larger lodge on the same lake is also available for sale.  Please inquire.

Premier Fly-In Fishing & Hunting Lodge

#954
$1,100,000
New Listing
Size: 

Crown Lease just under 1 acre

Location: 

NE Saskatchewan

Game Species: 
Black Bear
Fish Species: 
Lake Trout, Northern Pike, Arctic Grayling and Whitefish.
Quotas: 
Unlimited Black Bear
Description: 

This is an offering for the most discerning buyer; a 5 star operation in some of the top freshwater fishing waters in the world.  This remote location, in the heart of the Canadian Shield, has no other fishing pressure and has only been fished for just over 10 years.  This makes for an ideal environment to grow monsters, whether it be trophy class lake trout, northern pike, arctic grayling or whitefish.  This operation also offers an outpost camp, along with substantial rod days on 5 other surrounding lakes and river allowing you to cater to every type of angler.  Oh and did I mention the unlimited black bear tags? 

This premium quality lodge has all of the facilities needed to provide luxury and comfort in a wilderness setting.  Set on a crystal clear lake in Northeastern Saskatchewan, where clients will find the lake and the surrounding area all to themselves.  The 4,500 sq. ft. pine lodge is centered around the great room which boasts 25 ft. cathedral ceilings and a huge wall of windows overlooking the serene lake.  The lodge is just over 10 years old and includes 16 bedrooms, dining and lounging areas, fully stocked store, commercial kitchen and deck overlooking the lake, inclusive of a hot tub.  After a hard day of fishing clients can pick one of the 3 lounge areas; sit around the wood burning fireplace and swap stories while enjoying the view or find a cozy corner to read a book.  Clients are kept pampered with furnishings that you would not expect in this remote environment, considering everything arrives by air.

As mentioned, this package includes exclusive access to six great fishing lakes, as well as different sections of river that all have extraordinary fishing.  Your guests can enjoy staying at the outpost camp to get away from the main lodge for a couple of nights or they can do a day trip to one of the other lakes or rivers.  Three of these lakes have boats waiting for the next angler to come along.  Some of the lakes haven’t even been fished yet providing boundless fishing opportunities for clients.  One of these locations includes petroglyphs and beautiful waterfalls and rapids with excellent arctic grayling fishing upstream.  This is just a taste of the possibilities. 

The outpost is not your typical outpost camp; it includes a pine 2 bedroom cabin set amongst the trees complete with power, bathroom with shower (hot water), fully equipped kitchen and large living space.  The outpost is complete with two 16’ Lunds powered by 15hp 4 stroke motors and a large dock for moorage.  There is also a small staff cabin if your guests decide to take a guide with them on their adventure.

The main lodge’s lake is also well equipped with 8 – 18ft. Lunds all powered by 40hp 4 stroke motors.  All boats are equipped with GPS fish finders, deluxe swivel seats, huge casting decks, rod holders, a live well and a bait well.  Clients are also outfitted with Sage fly fishing gear or St. Croix bait casting and spinning rods coupled with Shimano reels for hard tackle fishing.  Simms waders and boots are available for those clients wishing to wade.  

All of the different lakes provide excellent fishing; centuries ago the receding glaciers carved out deep holes and crevices that make up the beautiful, clear-water lakes of today that your clients get to enjoy.  These lakes are home to huge fish that lurk in the many bays, coves or deep holes - just check out the pictures for proof!  The largest northern pike taken at the lodge to date was 35lbs and the largest lake trout 50 lbs!  

If fishing isn’t enough, let’s add in black bear hunting! The current owners have only been taking fall bear hunters for the last 2 years making for a thriving population; not to mention, this hunt is Saskatchewan’s most remote bear hunt available.  The area is fresh, untouched and home to many trophy bears; a good percentage of them being colour-phase.  The current owners have only taken a very small amount of hunters the past two seasons, but with unlimited tags available the new owner could expand the business significantly in this area.

This operation brings in great numbers and is only increasing those numbers every year.  This is a turnkey business that could be taken over with the new owner hitting the ground running.  If you’ve ever dreamed of owning a premier fishing lodge in one of the best freshwater fishing locations in the world – look no further. 

 

*Second outpost camp available.  Please inquire for further details.

Area Data: 

The lodge lies within the southern edge of the Taiga Ecoregion and within the Canadan shield.  Massive, crystalline Archean rocks form broad, sloping uplands and lowlands, with numerous small lakes and eskers.  The lodge is surrounded by forest tundra.  Most trees native to the Canadian boreal are conifers, with needle leaves and cones.

Jewel Lake Resort

#942
$995,000
Size: 

34 deeded acres with 420' of lake frontage

Location: 

NE of Greenwood, BC

Fish Species: 
Rainbow and Brooke Trout
Description: 

What a hidden gem and in such a great location!  This one would be great for someone looking for a lifestyle change without having to put any time or money into the business right away – turn-key and ready to go!  The resort itself has been around for about 30 years, however, it’s built on the old town site of Jewel Lake, that was established when the historic Jewel-Denero Mine came to be back in the early 1900’s.  This spot has iconic BC written all over it; picturesque and quiet.

Specializing in camping and fishing with families coming back every year, this truly is a turn-key operation.  They are almost fully booked for next season already – this is just from repeat clientele and word of mouth.  The resort is in an excellent location being only 6 hrs from Vancouver and only 9 kms off of Hwy 3 on paved road.  The resort has been well maintained and has a variety of options from basic tent sites all the way to fully serviced cabins, along with a newly renovated owner’s residence.  All of the cabins have also recently been upgraded or improved, including: wiring, plumbing, appliances, mattresses, etc.   

The resort is located on 34 deeded acres with approximately 421 feet of lake frontage including a commercial foreshore lease.  The lake frontage includes a natural beach and two docks - one for boats and one for swimming; perfect for the kids to get in the water!  The resort has a good mix of trees, meadow and also a creek running through the property.  The resort consists of an office/lounge, owner’s log residence, 4 – 2 bedroom lakeside cabins, 3 ‘hunter’ cabins, 1 creekside atco trailer turned cabin, 2 docks and over 40 campsites.  Some campsites are equipped with power, but all with fire pits and picnic tables.  Drinking water is available to campers at 4 locations throughout the campground.  Campsites range from tent sites to large RV sites to group sites.  There are 2 shower houses on the property, as well as flush toilets and outhouses.  There are also various outbuildings including a shop.

Fishing on Jewel Lake is excellent being well stocked with Rainbow and Brooke Trout.  The lake is 3 kms long allowing for lots of space and privacy, but not having to worry about guests being out on big water.  There are also excellent trails in the area for hiking, quading, biking, horseback riding, etc.  The owner’s in recent years haven’t ran the resort in the wintertime, although, there is a lot of interest and tons of potential there.  Just some of the winter activities guests could enjoy, include: cross-country skiing, ice fishing, skating, and snowmobiling.

In the past there has also been a restaurant on the premises, however, possibly a better option in the future may be a food truck to service your guests.  Currently the owners provide a very limited supply of staple grocery items; ice cream being the hit!

The resort is in 11 titles due to being on the old town site.

Tweedsmuir Provincial Park

Tweedsmuir Provincial Park is one of the largest (981,000 hectares) of BC's several hundred parks.  Located in the west-central region of the province, 480 km northwest of Vancouver, as the crow flies, Tweedsmuir is roughly traingular in shape.  It is bounded on the north and northwest by the Ootsa-Whitesail Lakes reservoir, on the west and southwest by the Coast Mountains, and on the east by the Interior Plateau.  The landscape varies drastically from domes of eroded lava and fragmented rock in breathtaking colours of red, orange, yellow and lavender to the rugged Coast Mountains and the deep valleys and ocean fjords of the Bella Coola area. The climate and topography vary drastically throughout Tweedsmuir Provincial Park giving it many vastly different vegetation zones and animal varieties. 

The Alexander MacKenzie Heritage Trail passes through this park, via Heckman Pass and Burnt Bridge Creek.  Other trails in the park are numerous and access Hunlen Falls (259m), one of the highest waterfalls in Canada. 

Aside from offering some of the most spectacular scenery in North America, Tweedsmuir is a magnet for outdoor recreationists.  Favourite activities include angling, hiking, horseback riding on wilderness trails, camping, and canoeing the Turner Lake Chain.

Area Data: 

The Blackwater River & Grease Trail 

The Blackwater River is a major tributary of the Fraser River, flowing generally north-eastward from the Ilgachuz Range and across the Fraser Plateau in the Chilcotin and Cariboo regions of central British Columbia, Canada. It's confluence with the Fraser is approximately 40 km northwest of Quesnel.

The river is 280 km long, draining an area of approximately 12,000 square kilometres, and dropping over 900 m before joining with the Fraser.

The river is of significant historical importance to both First Nations and Canadian history. For centuries, the Ulkatcho/Carrier and Tsilhqot'in peoples used a trail - the so-called "Grease Trail" - on the northern side of the river in their trade with coastal First Nation communities. The name 'Grease Trail' refers to one of the main commodities transported along the route - eulachon grease, a highly-prized staple - traces of which coated parts of the route after centuries of use. It was this trail that Sir Alexander Mackenzie used in his historic overland journey west to the Pacific Ocean in 1793, traversing the river itself on his return.

The Blackwater River has been designated as a heritage river by the government of British Columbia.

Fish the multitude of mountain streams for Rainbow and Cutthroat Trout, the lakes and rivers for Dolly Varden to 14 pounds, and the deep lakes for Mackinaw and Whitefish. The Chilcotin country offers one of the few remaining areas where all the fish are native to the systems. The streams provide exciting fishing, with the wild trout guaranteeing you action found in few other areas.
