Shopping in the Watch Lake / Green Lake Area

Shopping around Watch Lake and Green Lake is truly amazing. There are quite a few craft stores that offer hand made crafts and souvenirs. You can find Christmas decorations, household things, tapes, CDs, and books, clothing for all ages, and fishing gear including locally hand-tied flies.

You can even by buffalo skulls and hides and order organic buffalo meat by the side or whole animal. See the business directory for details.

Our closest major business center is 100 Mile House, about a half hour drive. If you wish to stay close to the lakes, though, you can find pretty much every thing you need in one of the local stores. The area is also rich in history with pieces of the old wagon road to Barkerville still intact and there is a farm equipment museum close by that still has the original barn that was used for the the stage coach horses.
