Located in the Watson River Valley, eight kilometres north of Carcross, this colourful lake drains into the Watson River. Well-known for its lake trout fishing, it was called "Mbédé Méne" (rainbow/trout lake) or "Looge Zhaazhe" (little fish) in the language of the native Tagish people. The first usage of Spirit Lake was during World War II, when the beauty of the colourful lake was said to exemplify the spirit of the north.
