Watch Lake is a fisherman’s paradise with 3.5 miles of speed restricted lake, stocked yearly with 50,000 rainbow trout. Whether you love to troll the shorelines or are more of a winter ice fisherman, this is exactly where you want to be. Watch Lake attracts a balance of full time and part time residents and is a quiet community lake that is not suited for high powered watercraft. The lake is accessed on the North side via Pioneer Road and on the South side by Moose Point Drive.
The roots of history run deep in the area surrounding Watch Lake, and pioneer homesteads are a common sight as you explore the shores and back-country.
Watch Lake Lodge, an operating cattle and guest ranch owned for decades by the Horn family, offers cabins, camping, horseback riding and fishing throughout the summer. Ace High Resort and Tall Timbers Resort also offer cabins and camping and are havens for fishermen. Most of the waterfront properties on Watch Lake are less than 1 acre in size and from almost anywhere on the lake or close surrounding area you are within reach of crown land and almost endless recreational trails. Snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, ice skating and exploring on ATVs are among the activities open to those who come to Watch Lake. Nearby Green Lake is also within walking distance from many points on Watch Lake, and at most, just a short drive away.
100 Mile House is the service center for the Watch Lake community and where students in Grades 8-12 attend school at Peter Skene Ogden Secondary School. Typically, students in Grades K-7 are bussed to nearby Horse Lake Elementary School or 100 Mile House Elementary School where a French immersion program is offered.
