Description From Owner:
  • Lake Errock - Originally Squakum Lake, but this inelegant name, for a kind of spring salmon, was changed to Loch Erroch for the post office maintained here from 1892 to 1896.
  • (The name was apparently borrowed by A. W. Ross, local rancher and MP, from Loch Ericht in Inverness-shire, Scotland.)
  • When the post office was reestablished in 1940, it was as Lake Errock, but Victoria insisted upon calling the lake Squakum Lake for about thirty more years.
  • With permission from G.P.V and Helen B. Akrigg 1997 British Columbia Place Names. UBC Press.
