Area Data :

Ruth Lake Provincial Park northeast of 100 Mile House is a recreational day-use area that provides great outdoor opportunities for visitors and residents in the South Cariboo region. The park protects a unique landscape that illustrates the impressive geology of the last ice age, including large boulders, reminders of the great ice sheets of 10,000 years ago.


The 30-hectare park is found within the drier portion of the sub-boreal spruce biogeoclimatic zone of the Cariboo Plateau, and features moderate to steep slopes above Ruth Lake that are blanketed with undeveloped old-growth Douglas fir dispersed among forests of pine and spruce trees.


The forest surrounding Ruth Lake is a diverse and important habitat for wildlife such as black bear, mule deer, hawks, songbirds and waterfowl.


This area was home to the Shuswap First Nations, and supported their semi-nomadic lifestyle of sustenance hunting, fishing and food gathering.


Ruth Lake is very popular with local residents for swimming, canoeing, kayaking and power boating. A grassy area overlooks a small beach with a swim dock, and a swimming area is roped off using buoys. Note that there are no lifeguards on duty at Ruth Lake.


Ruth Lake is a favourite spot for fishing for rainbow trout, and a single rough boat launch ramp provides access to the Lake. Facilities include pit toilets, but there are no camping facilities provided at the park.


Ruth Lake Provincial Park is located 30 km northeast of 100 Mile House. Turn off Highway 97 just north of 100 Mile House, drive towards Forest Grove. Continue straight on, following the signs to the park.


Forest Grove
Situated just off Highway 97, near 100 Mile House, Forest Grove is in the Cariboo region of British Columbia. Prior to World War I settlers were making their way into the area and building small farms and/or living off the fur trade. One early settler, Oliver Philips, named the area Forest Grove after a town by the same name in Oregon. By 1917 Forest Grove consisted of a lodge, general store, post office, billiard hall, trading post, a large barn as well as a storage building. The first school was built about 1922 and serviced just the local area. Due to transportation difficulties communities further afield had their own small schools. By World War II farming was giving way to forestry as the main industry.


Forest Grove remains a small community servicing the retirement and resort business on surrounding lakes. In the general area there is a school, store, legion, community hall and post office. There remains some farm activity as well as forestry.
