Court Ordered sale. 108 lakefront acres on Upper Arrow Lake, 1 km south of Halcyon Hot Springs and 20 mins north of Nakusp.

This lush and fully forested waterfront property has almost 3,000 feet of lakefront, including a large sandy point. The property has huge upside potential as the zoning allows for 5-acre parcels and from a timber point of view there is a significant inventory or mature trees.

Great holding property with development potential. If 5 acre parcels were created you could have a house and then 2 cabins.

Location : Highway 23 - Halcyon Hot Springs, BC. 20 minutes north of Nakusp and 10 minutes south of The Galena Bay Ferry terminal.
Access : The north boundary is approx. 1 km south of the entrance to Halcyon Hot Springs Resort.
Improvements : None - bare land.
Services : Power along highway.
Recreation :

In summer the boating on Arrow Lake is fabulous, there are lots of interesting excursions up the long and fjord like Beaton Arm which extends more than 12 km off the main lake body. Kayak along the shores of Galena Bay, visit historical sites such as the ghost town of Arrowhead, or cruise its beaches for drift wood.

Fishing is top notch year-round, but best in the fall/winter months with large rainbows 9-15 lbs. a common catch, dollies are also prevalent, and the smaller Kokanee salmon are god eating.

All around the area are hundreds of kms for FSR roads for quading and dirt biking roads. Just a couple kilometres south is one such access point. This road then extends up above and is a seasonal access to the upper portion of the land.

Revelstoke Mountain Resort is approx. 1 hour away and offers amazing skiing and boarding. Some of the best fishing of the year is during the winter months as the lake remains open water year-round. And what better way to spend a snowy winter day than in a hot spring only 1 kilometre to the north!

Area Data :

Nakusp is the nearest town and is only a 20-minute drive to the south along the lake. The town has a population of approx. 1,600 and offers all your basic amenities. The town has a 3,000 ft paved runway, great schools, quaint shops and services and a small but vibrant arts community. Nakusp also fronts on Upper Arrow Lake and has a great marina facility and attractive waterfront.

Upper Arrow Lake
The property fronts on upper Arrow Lake for approx. 3,000 feet. Upper Arrow Lake is part of the Arrow Lakes which are essentially two widening’s of the Columbia River made larger by the creation of the BC Hydro Reservoir after the construction of the Keenleyside Dam. Upper Arrow Lake extends over 100 km from above Revelstoke southward past Nakusp to the narrows near Arrow Park. Lower Arrow Lake extends further south to the city of Castlegar.

History :

The origin of the lake’s name (Arrow Lake) was a cultural feature known as Arrow Rock on the east shore of Lower Arrow Lake, about 35 km upstream from Castlegar. Here a large rock outcrop or overhang above the water was found, in the face of which was a hole filled with arrows. Different stories surround the meaning of the arrows, but commonly said to be shot there by the Lakes people (Sinixt) for good luck, either before or after war.

It was customary for the west Kootenay Indians to winter along the southern Columbia and to ascend the Columbia to the lakes every summer where hunting was good. As the tribes in the Slocan were always on the alert for war, they had their scouts out on the Arrow Lakes to note when their enemies came up the river. One summer the scouts returned from the [Arrow] Lakes with news that a particularly large force of warriors were coming. So the Slocan tribes prepared for war and crossed the mountains in force to Nakusp.

On embarking from their canoes at Nakusp they noticed signs of a great storm having passed. When they reached the enemy approaching, the great storm had apparently come suddenly upon them and there was nothing left but a heaving mass of canoe wreckage and dead bodies. The Slocan Indians took this as a great favor from the great ‘Manatoo’, and in token of respect they fired all their arrows at the high rock off which they lay, and wrote inscriptions on the face of the rock. Because of the vast wealth of arrow heads that fell to the bottom of the lake that day, the Indians named it Arrow Lake. (Relayed by Richard Blyth, as told to him by Chief Louis Joseph, Burton.)
