As the traditional territory of the Secwepemc people, it seems Downtown Williams Lake has always been the heart of the Cariboo. For over 4,000 years, Indigenous peoples have been living in and travelling through Williams Lake, known as Yucwt in the Secwepemc language. For many generations, they existed in sync with the bounty of the Cariboo Chilcotin lands and waters. And what a bounty there is! Head east to find grizzly bears, cedar rainforests, and alpine meadows. Or head west to visit sand dunes, bighorn sheep, and prickly pear cactus. When you make Downtown Williams Lake your home base, there’s no end to the adventures awaiting you.
