Lake is located 27 km (17 miles) north of Chetwynd
and 39 km (24 miles) south of Hudson's
Hope on Hwy 29.
Moberly Lake is named after Harry Moberly who happened to work for
the local Hudson's Bay Company and lived on the lake's north shore
in 1865. During this time Moberly Lake was attracting a lot of settlers
with gold being discovered in the nearby area.
Today there is a small community of Moberly Lake which is situated
on the north side of the lake along Hwy 29. At Moberly Lake you
can find a small general store, volunteer fire hall, service station
and a few residential homes.
