Nazko and Baker Creek are a highly sought after recreational area, due to their raw beauty and seclusion along with its easy access to the town and employment center of Quesnel. There are several large lakes in the area including Marmot Lake, Puntataenkut Lake, Teltierone Lake, Tiltzarone Lake and Puntchesakut Lake. The region has enormous tracts of public land with logging roads and trails providing excellent year-round access and exploration opportunity.
Quesnel is the closest urban center with a population of approximately 10,000. Quesnel is a logging and transportation hub. The town is surrounded with productive forests and sits conveniently on Highway 97 between the urban centers of Williams Lake and Prince George. Quesnel offers all the modern necessities required to supply and service your rural property in Baker Creek. Sylvia’s Café is a short trip up the road if you need basic items and do not have time to drive into Quesnel.
Lodge pole pine is the dominant tree species in the Nazko region. In areas of low-lying wetlands, white spruce may be found in abundance. Because the property has areas of lowland marsh, you may come across several species of marsh grass and thick sections of willow. Pine tends to dominate the ridges on the property while the marsh grass and willow is concentrated in the lower sections of the property. There is enormous opportunity to open the property up for grazing purposes.
Nazko is famous for its recreational pursuits. If you are a trail riding enthusiast, the area offers thousands of kilometres of trails and logging road access for quads, dirt bikes and snowmobiles.
The numerous lakes and water bodies nearby provides ample opportunity for water sports and fishing. A variety of fish species can be caught throughout the region, but most common to the immediate area are rainbow trout and char. This is a renowned trout fishing area.
For hunting and wildlife viewing enthusiasts, the property holds resident moose and mule deer, which may be seen early in the morning or at dusk all from the front porch. The property sits in Management Unit 5-13 and offers general tags for mule deer, whitetail and black bear. There is also a long season for grouse and other game birds, which frequent the property.
The region surrounding Quesnel, was made famous by the Gold Rush, which occurred starting in the mid 19th century. The Gold Rush caused a major influx in the number of people moving to the area and in 1861 it was said that the town of Barkerville (east of Quesnel) was the most populous city in North America east of Chicago and north of San Francisco. Many remnants of this time-period remain throughout the region, as evidenced by the numerous historical buildings in and around Quesnel.
Baker Creek and Nazko became famous cowboying centers, as cowboys would summer thousands of cattle in the high country surrounding Nazko and Baker Creek and then drive them into auction at Quesnel each year. Alexander Mackenzie was one of the first Europeans to visit the Baker Creek and Nazko region of the province in 1793, as he was guided through by the Carrier First Nation tribe.
The cowboys found it difficult to make a living in the early days with poor access to supplies, long distances to market and sporadic weather conditions.
