Burns Lake
Burns Lake is situated approximately 226 km (141 miles) west of Prince George on the Yellowhead Hwy 16. Burns Lake is centered in a region called the Lakes District.

Lakes District
Looking at a map of BC, one is astonished by the amount of lakes that do surround Burns Lake.

Centre of British Columbia
To the east is Topley and the exit for Granisle and Babine Lake, BC's largest longest natural lake and, to the south is Francois Lake, close to the geographical centre of British Columbia. Farther south is the remote Ootsa Lake, on the shores of Tweedsmuir (North) Provincial Park.

Fishing is famous in the Burns Lake Region, with the lakes yielding both Rainbow trout and Char. Other recreational activities include soccer, trail riding, hiking, hunting and, in the winter, hockey, ice-fishing, snowmobiling and cross-country skiing.

Grassy Plains and Takysie Lake
Other sites to see close by to Burns Lake are the communities of Grassy Plains and Takysie Lake. These small communities are on the south side of Francois Lake.

Inland Ferry
There is a ferry that crosses the lake on a regular schedule to the Southside. For those people who have lots of time to explore, there is a road around Francois Lake through the communities of Noralee and Ootsa Lake.
