are just a few of the options. Seton Lake is a popular lake for fishing and is stocked with rainbow trout and lake trout as well as dolly varden. The best spots for fishing fall near the mouth of the creeks on Seton Lake just a short boat trip away from your lakeside cabin vacation rental.
Sightseeing tours, hiking, rock climbing, and off-roading
are also popular and take advantage of the majestic scenery surrounding the lake itself. Two hiking trails to make note of include the Seton Ridge and Nosebag Trails. Also nearby, is the popular rock climbing destination referred to as the Cayoosh Wall. All this is located only minutes from your lakeside accommodations.
Aside from the awesome scenery and outdoor activities, the area is rich in history. The lake itself was part of an important Gold Rush route
out of the lower mainland to Lillooet and the Cariboo. During the Gold Rush years, a succession of small steam ferries served the gold-crazed adventurers and historical monuments can be seen at the nearby town of Seton Portage. The museum in downtown Lillooet is also of interest and features First Nations artifacts and Gold Rush era relics.
If all that sounds like too much activity just curl up with a book and enjoy the view from your lakeside vacation rental
. Cabin rentals, cottages, condo rentals, and other forms of accommodation await you.
