Headwaters is 1250 meters (4100 feet) in elevation and 11c (20f) cooler than the valley below.
Floating Islands within Headwaters Lake provide the spice of the unexpected as they glide across the lake propelled by the gentle summer breezes. The lonely call of the loon reminds one of the solitude of the wilderness.
It is possible to catch a glimpse (or photograph) of deer, moose, beaver or otter. Whisky Jacks, Swallows and Hummingbirds all make their home at Headwaters while Loons use one of the floating islands as a nesting place.
The Headwaters Lodge has a small store (operated seasonally) which sells fishing supplies (worms), groceries, candy bars, pop, etc..
Boats are available for rent. We have a limited number of aluminum boats with motor for rent. If motor is required, please advise when making reservations to be sure of getting one.
Headwaters Family Camp is a family-oriented camp. i.e. No loud parties or music etc. is tolerated.
Back in the 20's - you'd only find a small trappers cabin at Headwaters. Eventually, a few more cabins appeared and the high mountain lake became known as a fishing camp. As time moved on, the Farrel family began providing friends from the Okanagan with more cabins and an easy getaway weekend with fun filled fishing adventures. In the early 90's, the camp continued to evolve with the Bockstatt family from Switzerland adding more features and refurbishing the rustic lakefront cabins. In 2000, the Woodfield family looked after Headwaters. May of 2004, saw Donna and Bruce Jackson’s life long dream of owning Headwaters become a reality. Due to health reasons were force to sell in 2014. Now, we….Ed and Vicki Smith have ‘taken the reins from” the Jackson’s and can’t wait to meet all the Headwater Friends……Past, Present AND Future!!! Please stop in and meet us next time you are in the neighborhood!!
