Butedale Falls is a high-volume waterfall located just north of the old ghost town of Butedale, British Columbia. The entire section of stream between the outlet of Butedale Lake & the Inside Passage is one long series of cascades collectively known as Butedale Falls. Butedale Lake is 315 feet above sea level and the falls base is the ocean so the falls' height is 315 feet.
Butedale is a ghost town that was founded on Princess Royal Island, British Columbia in 1918 as a fishing, mining and logging camp. Initially the salmon cannery was established by Western Packers which was purchased and operated by the Canadian Fishing Company until it ceased operating in the 1950s. At its peak the summertime population of Butedale was over 400 people.
There is a small dam which generates power from Butedale Lake immediately behind the town. Impressive Butedale Falls flows out of the lake into the ocean immediately to the right of the wharves. The Butedale Founders Association talked about restoring the town but it is quickly falling to ruin.
It is a popular point of interest for cruise ship and ferry passengers sailing the Inside Passage of British Columbia. The site is accessible only by boat.
