Paleo Indians lived in the area over 10,000 years ago as evidence has been uncovered in the Charlie Lake Cave. The find includes a single spearhead, a large flaked stone chopper, and small soft-stone bead. Charlie Lake was formed by ice-damming of the Peace River many years ago. In the 1920's the trip from Vancouver to Charlie Lake took two weeks.
