Wells Gray Provincial Park

Wells Gray Provincial Park provides activity year-round.  Within this alpine wilderness—full of trails, wildlife, and waterfalls—the Clearwater, Thompson, and Murtle Rivers roar.  During spring, summer, and fall you can hike through ancient forests, paddle lakes, and raft on river rapids.  In the winter, viewing frozen waterfalls and skiing down backcountry slopes are options to enjoy the outdoors.

Dunn Peak Provincial Park

With an elevation of 2,607 metres, Dunn Peak Provincial Park can be viewed from Kamloops on a clear day.  This protected area has large wilderness areas and considerable undisturbed old-growth forest.  This mountain is an essential habitat for a large variety of wildlife, including wolf, cougar, marten, river otter, black bear, mule deer, mountain goat, great blue heron, and bald eagles.  The park includes a significant fish migration route and spawning grounds in the North Thompson and North Barriere Rivers.

Local Lakes

Dunn Lake, long and deep, offers excellent fishing for rainbow trout, lake trout, bull trout, and Kokanee.  Due to the depth, the lake stays relatively cool, with trolling the most successful fishing technique.  Along the northern shore, there is a recreation site with a car-top boat launch.

East, North, and South Barriere Lakes each personalize opportunities to enjoy paddling in calm waters, fishing, or drifting around in a pontoon boat.  Uncrowded East Barriere Lake is great for waterskiing, wakeboarding, and other watersports.

Latremouille Lake Recreation Site is a rustic treed campsite with a rough boat launch.  The lake is popular with anglers and campers.

Hallamore Lake, a scenic alpine lake, is noted for its tranquil atmosphere and is a popular fishing destination.  An RV park and resort are nearby.

HISTORY

The history of the Lower North Thompson is as wild as you could imagine.  ‘From First Nations to European settlers to people in the 21st century looking to escape to a quieter life, the Lower North Thompson has been and continues to be, home.’  (North Thompson Valley Barriere).

Upon arrival in the North Thompson in 1817, Alexander Ross (with the North West Company) quoted ‘It was a barren waste well-stocked in wild animals of the chase and with some few furs.’  Little did he know.  The fur trade boomed in the mid-1800s.  Hudson Bay Fur Trading Co. constructed the trading post called Little Fort.

Gold was discovered in 1861, bringing people with riches on their minds.  For a mere $25 these prospectors could get a double-barreled shotgun and a saddle, or an acre of land.  Louis Creek sprung up with its own post office and store.  The road between Louis Creek and Kamloops completed in 1891.

By the early 1900s, Barriere and Little Fort had a school, post office, and telephone service.  Barriere became a bona fide town in 1914 when the CP Railway connected the Lower North Thompson to the rest of BC.  The Barriere River dam provided electricity for the city of Kamloops from 1914 to 1950—well before the smaller communities close to Barriere had electricity—including Barriere.

Ranching became a staple way of life in the mid-1900s.  One of the first ranches in the area was Little Fort Herefords.  Gung Loy Jim purchased three Hereford heifers in the fall of 1943, beginning a decades-long quest for beef cattle.  The Jims also purchased a hotel in Little Fort, which burned to the ground within the year.  Not to be deterred, they rebuilt a general store in its place.  Last year Jim’s Food Market celebrated 100 years of operation.  The Gung Loy Jim Scholarship, established in 2003, was a way to give back to the cattle industry and encourage the ranchers of tomorrow.
