Granisle is a picture-perfect spot within the Bulkley-Nechako that is abundant with recreational activities. From snowshoeing, snowmobiling and cross-country skiing in the winter months to floating on a lake and fishing for the next big catch, the Village of Granisle is a great place to get away from it all.
Granisle’s Museum and Visitor Centre is home to a set of replica mammoth bones. Found in 1971, the actual bones are on display in Ottawa. Also located at the museum and visitor centre is a crafters hut displaying craft for sale from local talent.
Many hiking trails are available within the Village of Granisle and area, with difficulties ranging from easy to intermediate. If this piques your interest, visit us at the Visitor Centre and we can point you in the right direction.
One of the highlights of the area is Babine Lake. This lake, at 177 kilometers long, is the longest natural lake in British Columbia. Plenty of different species of fish swim in this lake, including Char, Kokanee, and Trout. If you are looking for a quiet, peaceful place for fishing, there are many small lakes in the area that are accessible via ATV in the summer months and snowmobile in the winter.
One of the recent additions to the Village of Granisle is the Granisle Memorial Park. During the second weekend of August, the Village of Granisle holds Granisle Days. This annual event includes a parade with floats and a variety of community activities.
Granisle is a beautiful and friendly place with many attractions for the outdoor enthusiast!
