Burns Lake is a municipality in the Bulkley-Nechako Regional District of British Columbia. The population is 1659 and the area is 6.54 Km². It began as a small rest stop for travelers on their way to the Gold Rush. Many of those travelers were enticed to stay by the opportunity to get rich in the forestry, fur and mining businesses within the town. Today many of its residents are still employed in the forestry, tourism and mining industries. In early 2012 the town suffered a devastating loss of the Babine Forest products Mill. This Mill was one of the towns biggest employers. On the windy main street of Burns Lake, there is a small, square log cabin names "The Bucket of Blood". Scary right? The cabin was a former fur trading post, that later become a popular den for gambling. With gambling usually came drinking and with drinking usually came valiance - hence the name. The closest airport to Burns Lake is in Smithers, BC at about 150 km away and Prince George airport, 230 km away. The town now boasts four elementary schools, one secondary school and one College. Burns Lake is intertwined with six first nations territories that are integrated into the community and the schools. The town is surrounded by 5,000 kilometers of pristine shoreline, offering beautiful views, hikes and opportunities for nature lovers.
