Lang Bay

LANG BAY, pop 283, on the west side of Malaspina Strait 17 km southeast of POWELL RIVER, was the site of oxen LOGGING by Edward STAMP and RAILWAY LOGGING by BC MILLS TIMBER & TRADING CO in the 19th century. The Lang family arrived in 1911. The bay remains an active LOG BOOMING and sorting ground. TOURISM has become important to the area, which has many fine beaches, and residential development has expanded.
