Lone Butte
Lone Butte is located on Hwy 24, 20 km (12.5 miles) south east of 100 Mile House, named after the 250-high butte, remnants of an ancient volcano. Lone Butte was once the largest community in the South Cariboo dating back to the late 1800's.

Historic Lone Butte
Little is left of the historic Lone Butte. The hospital is gone, as is the Lone Butte Hotel, mill, stockyards, and railway services that once drove the economy.

Water Tower
All that is left of the past is the wooden water tower dating back to the 1920's; this was used to service steam locomotives operating for the Pacific Great Eastern Railroad.

Quiet Town
Today, Lone Butte is a quiet town servicing the fishers and tourists visiting the area. There are a few shops, restaurants, café and the famous Iron Horse Pub that is a very large log building that has to be seen to be believed.

Panoramic View
To get a great panoramic view of Lone Butte you can climb up the old volcanic butte for one of the nicest views in the south Cariboo.

Fishing
Lone Butte sits at the western end of Hwy 24, 'The Fishing Hwy'. This 97 km (61 miles) highway will allow access to at least 200 lakes with the best fly fishing in North America.

Fishing Resorts in Area

Green Lake
One lake that is 15 km (9.4 miles) south of Lone Butte is Green Lake. Named for its brilliant green colour, Green Lake is approximately 14 km (9 miles) long. The lake has great fishing, swimming, boating, bird and wildlife watching.

Green Lake Provincial Park
There is a provincial park at Green Lake, complete with boat launch and campground facility.

Dude Ranches
