Detailed Logging Road Map from Whatshan Lake to Fortunes Landing
You can drive to Fortunes Landing from the West side of Arrow Lakes. The turn off is at Whatshan Lake. There are a number of signs by the side of the road that will direct you. Click here for a large map. This is a logging road and it will take you about 45 minutes from the highway turnoff to get to Fortunes Landing. If you have your trailer with you, it will be ~ 1 hour and 10 minutes.
Since this is a logging road, the driveability and accessibility of Fortunes Landing will change depending on the time of year. We recommend that you bring trailers AFTER freshet. This typically occurs the middle of June. Once your trailer is in, you have a much wider window to enjoy the property. That is typically from May 15 - October 15. So, your first year, expect to bring your trailer in on July 1st. Thereafter, as long as your trailer winters there, which is no problem, you may have access as early as April 15 and usually until November 15. It really depends on the snow pack.
You can access the property by boat (all year), vehicle (Spring, Summer, Fall), ATV (early Sping to late Fall) or snowmobile (winter). It is actually faster to get to your property in the winter. The reason is that you can snowmobile along the waterfront from the ferry landing and get there in 20 minutes. You would not take the logging roads, which go up quite high and then descend back down to the waterfront.
The road is generally very good post June 15 until October 15. We highly recommend that you have a boat if you are interested in acquring a lot at Fortunes Landing. This is the 3rd largest lake in BC. Without a boat, why be on the lake? If you are at Fortunes Landing, you may want to get groceries, go shopping, or just hang out at Nakusp. It is 90 minutes from Fortunes Landing to Nakusp (the closest town) by vehicle. It is 20-25 minutes by boat. Save yourself over an hour and a lot of stress. Just take your boat to Nakusp while at Fortunes Landing.
Fortunes Landing is also easily accessible from the East side by putting your boat in at the Burton Boat Launch. It is a leisurely 5 minutes across the lake from there. You can also visit our Discovery Centre in Calgary, AB that we have at the Linwood Homes office at 11 Bowridge Drive NW Calgary, AB T3B 3R6.
Please call in advance to make an appointment regardless of how you are accessing the site or if you wish to meet us at Linwoods offices.
