Facing in a westerly direction the property is in a premium location to enjoy the long summer days and the beautiful sunsets in the evenings. I have always enjoyed the many miles of endless hiking tails around both Tunkwa and Leighton Lakes.

Hydro is located at the south end of Leighton Lake at the BC Parks works yard. I am not sure of the current status to bring hydro any further to the Leighton side of the lake near the cabins.
Leighton Lake Stats
Leighton Lake is another beautiful Kamloops lake, of which I have enjoyed fishing for the famous Kamloops Trout since 1965. Leighton Lake receives the majority of its water from the falls which cascade down from Tunkwa Lake.
I have attached a link to the listing which is of Brian Chan, who is not only the most knowledgeable Biologist I have ever met, while wetting a line in the Kamloops Region of BC Brian works with Ministry of Fisheries in Kamloops as a senior Biologist. Brian is also a very knowledgeable writer and teacher of fly fishing techniques when it comes to "still water fishing".
