About Lake Cowichan, BC
Located just west of Duncan, BC, the village of Lake Cowichan is home to about 3000 people. The lake is 30km in length and 4km wide with several communities grouped on its shores. The valley surrounding Lake Cowichan features Canada’s warmest mean annual temperatures with hot summers and mild, rainy winters. It is the shopping and services centre for Mesachie Lake, Honeymoon Bay, and Youbou. Big box shopping is available in Duncan while the entertainment district of Victoria is less than 90 minutes away.
Lake Cowichan is largely undeveloped because most of the land is owned by logging companies. For this reason, it is considered a wonderful place to live and work due to the proximity to nature. During the summer, the local population doubles as vacationers from the cities visit for camping and water activities. If you like to be close to nature and enjoy fun on the lake then Lake Cowichan might be your next home.
