Fraser Lake at the Site of Fort Fraser

Well marked site in Beaumont Provincial Park, British Columbia. A small roadside marker in the park commemorates Simon Fraser's founding visit to the site in 1806. A much larger interpretive sign is located further in the park at the site of the fort and a well defined path leads to the lake's edge. A squared log house/barn is on site but of uncertain origin.

Location: Beaumont Provincial Park, British Columbia. The "F" fort map marker is the location of the site interpretive sign while the "M" map marker is the location of the Simon Fraser commemorative marker.
