Chilko Lake is located in the Coast Mountains, just about 155 miles north of Vancouver, Canada. It holds the title of largest natural high-elevation lake in Canada, measuring 3,855 feet in elevation. In total, the lake extends 40 miles in length and 3.2 miles in width, and its maximum depth reaches roughly 1,200 feet.
