You are invited to visit Granisle

Welcome to Babine Lake and Houston's fine lake country

Fulton River spawning channels are located 10 km from Granisle.

Located 49 km North of Topley on Highway 118, Granisle overlooks beautiful Babine Lake; the longest natural fresh water lake in British Columbia.

The Village is accessible by the only paved road into Babine Lake and has a marina with moorage slips, a concrete boat launch, day use picnic areas on the beach, Copperview Park in the centre of town and a Visitor Information Centre with laundry, washroom and shower facilities, as well as a sani-dump. Accommodation, gasoline, and groceries are available in Granisle.

Volcanoes, mammoths, trading posts, pictographs, mining for gold, silver and copper – this area is as rich in history as it is in natural beauty.

Many visitors catch a glimpse of moose, deer, bear, fox, coyote, wolf, eagle, geese and ducks – so bring your camera along! Whether your interests lay in hiking, fishing, boating, camping or just relaxing – our area is waiting for you.

The largest sockeye, spawning channels in the world are located within 10 kms of Granisle.

The sockeye return to spawn in late August, early September and the river mouth runs red with fish. Also within a 10 km radius you will find Red Bluff Provincial Park which is maintained by the Village of Granisle (reservations available through the Village of Granisle Office), small lakes and non-serviced campgrounds, restaurant, pub, full service campgrounds, and an extremely rustic 9- hole, par 3 golf course.

Mountains and beautiful scenery surround Babine Lake, while the shoreline is dotted with secluded sandy beaches.

Fly fisherman flock to the lake to get their chance at catching one of its large cutthroat and rainbow trout. If fly-fishing isn’t what you were aiming for, trolling for lake char and kokanee is another option.
