The Chilcotin Region
British Columbia bills its Chilcotin region as the last frontier. It could be better described as Montana 1910. Located in south central BC, it is 32M acres and has 950 residents, which is one person every 52 square miles. This sparse population has preserved the region in its pristine natural state. The best of the Chilcotin is the Chilko Valley which is located 150 air miles directly north of Vancouver. It is formed by Chilko Lake and the out flowing Chilko River and is one of the most beautiful areas of Canada. It is also home of The Chilko Experience.
