British Columbia Tourism Region : Northern BC

Description From Owner:
  • Glundebery Creek - Derived from the Tahltan Indian word meaning 'hungry mice.'
  • Horseranch Lake - There never was a ranch here, but packers found that the area around this lake provided good winter pasturage for their animals and took to calling it 'The Horse Ranch.'
  • Kedahda Lake - From the Tahltan Indian word meaning 'moose antler.'
  • McDame Creek - After Harry McDame, who discovered gold on this creek in 1874. He was the longtime partner of another black West Indian, J.R. Giscome (see Giscome).
  • Meek Lake - After R.J. Meek, in charge of the McDame detachment of the BC Provincial Police in the 1930s.
  • He served in the RCAF and RAF in World War Il, winning the Conspicuous Gallantry Medal and the Distinguished Flying Cross.
  • O'Donnel River - After a Major O'Donnel, an Irishman who staked a claim here in 1898.

Your Review:
  • Mount Pendleton

  • After Captain George Pendleton, who, after retiring from the sea (he was the captain of a sailing ship), bought a claim in this area and for many years washed for gold. He has been described as 'a small peppery man with a sense of command, who had an enormous fund of very interesting stories.'


  • Sylvester Creek

  • After R. Sylvester, who came into the country during the Cassiar gold rush of 1874 and established several trading posts that were subsequently taken over by the HBC. His prominent proboscis inspired the miners to name this landmark 'Sylvester's Nose.' G.M. Dawson considerately modified the name after finding Sylvester friendly and helpful.


  • Vines Lake

  • After Lionel Vines, a bush pilot killed in a plane crash in 1941.
