In the early days, the lake was vital to the early settlers as it provided a means of transportation and livelihood. So, too, did the gold mines, fisheries, and woodlands. For decades, logging fueled the economy of this area as horse carts loaded with timber made their way to sawmills and paper mills affording the locals with the necessities of life.
Old logging roads made way for camps, cabins, resorts and lodges. We invite you to our quaint and small towns, and come see why we say “bigger isn’t always better”!
