Little Fort
Little Fort is a small community 93 km (58 miles) north of Kamloops on Yellowhead Hwy 5 that is situated at the junction of Hwy 24, 'The Fishing Hwy' which goes west towards 100 Mile House.

Two Hundred Fishing Lakes
Little Fort gives you access to at least two hundred fishing lakes. If you fly fish, this is the best; some say it is the best in North America.

Free Fishing Advice
To find out where to fish and what bait to use, go to Little Fort Fly and Tackle in Little Fort. These people are very helpful and have been in business for years. You can find the Little Fort Fly and Tackle near the junction of Hwy 5 and Hwy 24.

Meeting Place
Most of the remote resorts use Little Fort Fly and Tackle for a meeting place when organizing remote trips using 4x4's. Parking and storage for your car can be arranged here. The Tackle Shop is also a great place to find friendly people with lots of free advice.

Accommodations and Services
Located at Little Fort are two motels: McDodds Motel (that has a restaurant and an RV park), and The Lost Horse Motel. There is also a Husky Gas Station and an antique store, a pub and church. Just north of Little Fort is the Rivermount Motel Café and Campground.

North Thompson River
For accessing the other side of the North Thompson River, BC Highways operates a ferry for limited vehicle service at Little Fort. You can take a motorcycle or bike on the ferry as well. During the winter during freeze up you can also take a passenger only aerial tramway.

Blackpool Road
There is a nice hike with great views close to the ferry terminal. The only other way to this side is to take the Blackpool Road at Louis Creek and Barriere.

Bonaparte Lake for Rainbows - 15 lb. plus range
For people who really want to explore try going into Bonaparte Lake. Great canoeing, boating, fishing and experiencing British Columbia's great outdoors can be expected. Bonaparte Lake is at an elevation of around (1,219 metres) 4,000 feet with the lake yielding Rainbows in the 15 lb. plus range.
