Outdoor recreation is a cornerstone of our community
With an abundance of opportunities, we want to make sure locals and visitors have an enjoyable place to pursue recreational activities.
The community forest is used for skiing, snowmobiling, mountain biking, all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), hunting, fishing, boating, and hiking. Since its inception, BLCF has supported recreation opportunities through more than $1 million dollars.
BLCF also keeps recreational users up to date on forest management, operations, and protection measures and provides groups opportunities to share input or ask questions.
Some of the groups and users that make up the recreational community within the BLCF include:
Burns Lake Mountain Biking Association
Supported by the BLCF through donations and in-kind services for Boer Mountain Recreational area. Supporting trail and campground expansions, development, and maintenance.
Burns Lake Airsoft Association

Supported through in-kind and financial considerations to develop, enhance, and maintain snowmobile trails north of Burns Lake through the community forest area base licence.

Supported through donations and in-kind services annually to maintain recreation sites and trails. LORS is a not-for profit society that manages sites in the Lakes District.
