There is a recreation site that lies on the southern shore of Little Big Bar Lake (on the right side of this footage just back of frame) and offers 6 campsites in a semi open setting. The site is used for fishing, boating and camping. There are a few private homes scattered around the lake but you still get the feeling of being in a remote area of BC with an unusual “evergaldes feel” to it due in part to the water vegetation and estuaries at the shoreline of Little Big Bar Lake. To find this hidden gem in beautiful British Columbia – from Clinton drive north on Hwy 97 for 10km. Turn west onto Big Bar Lake road and travel for 40km. Turn right onto a secondary road and follow for 2km. Turn left onto the access road into Little Big Bar Lake.
Little Big Bar offers a fine fishery for rainbow to 2lbs especially during spring and fall months. It is situated on the Fraser Plateau. The north side of the lake is open grassland which gives way to a forest of lodgepole pine and douglas fir. The west end consists of grass covered hills. A mixed forest of lodgepole pine, engleman spruce, douglas fir and alder make up the southside. A 3 meter (9.8 ft.) wide apron of sedge and common rush make up the entire perimeter of the lake. Submerged and floating aquatic vegetation extends out l00 m (328 ft.) on the west end and up to 200 m (656 ft) on the east end of the lake. Two-thirds of the south shore is covered with aquatic vegetation. Lake bottom is made up of soft organics and drops off slowly to a max depth of 4.6 m (l5 ft.). Nearby Lakes include Big Bar Lake which is 229 ha (565 ac.) in size is located on the same road, just minutes east of Little Big Bar. Camping and boat launching is available at a B.C. provincial park campsite. The rainbows are bigger in this lake and the action is good throughout the summer months. Beaverdam, located 29 km ( l8 miles) north of Clinton is 84 ha (208 ac) in size and offers a fine brook trout fishery. Boats can be launched but there are no organized campsites.
