The Ranch And Its Area
Located about 1 mile north of Green Lake The Graham Dunden Ranch offers plenty of varieties to spend  great vacations in the country. Surrounded by poplar, pine, and spruce trees with 2 own lakes on the property it’s an all year round get-away from your hectic all day life.

Green Lake`s
area is fairly abundant with moose and deer, and black bear, coyote, squirrels and marmots are also present. The west end of the lake attracts waterfowl to the nesting and migratory resting area. Owls and golden eagles can also be seen.
Green Lake is one of the larger bodies of water in the southern portion of the Cariboo. The lake is about 9 miles (14 km) long, averaging 1.5 km in width, with an irregular shoreline of approximately 36 miles (57 km).
The lake is excellent for both summer and winter recreation. Swimming, boating, fishing, waterskiing, paddling, and horseback riding are all popular, and sandy beaches dot the irregular shoreline at five spots. The lake itself is quite shallow allowing for the waters to remain quite warm, even into the fall months. The undulating plateau and highlands around the lake have become a cross-country skier's paradise
.

The South Cariboo
is a land rich in history, wide open spaces and abundant wildlife, offering a  variety of all season outdoor activities as there are Horseback Riding, Hiking, Fishing, Biking, Ice Fishing, Crosscountry Skiing, Snowshoeing, Snowmobiling, Dog Sledding, Sleighriding, ATV Tours, JetBoat Tours or Rafting, just to name a few.
