Rock Hunting

Haley Jeffrey

The Lakes District is the perfect place for a Rock Hounder of any level to come explore! In addition to the locations below, it is possible to find agate, jasper, obsidian, chalcedony, quartz, calcite, and petrified wood on any of the pebbly beaches in the area. There is also a chance of finding jade in the area, but this is extremely rare.


The lakes in the area most known for being home to the best pebbly beaches to comb are Tchesinkut Lake, Francois Lake, Babine Lake, Oosta Lake, and Taltapin Lake. Any of the windier local lakes will have these beaches waiting for you to discover!
