The Canadian Rockies town of Christina Lake in British Columbia is a must-see stop on your vacation to BC and the Canadian Rockies. Christina Lake offers a range of activities, as well as a chance to see part of the area’s ancient history.
Just 72 km (45 mi) west of Castlegar on Hwy #3, Christina Lake is known as one of the best family vacation destinations in BC. More than 2,000 years ago the area was inhabited by the Kootenai Indians who left their pictographs as evidence of their life in the Canadian Rockies. You can see these marvelous pictographs on the eastern shore at Texas Point Provincial Park.
In 1896 the CPR Railway found its way to Christina Lake, and in 1962 the Blueberry Paulson Pass was opened, creating a main artery from the area to Castlegar and Trail.
A wonderful year-round vacation area, Christina Lake provides long afternoons of fishing, boating, and kayaking along with great golf courses, snowmobiling trails, and hiking paths.
