Welcome to Kokanee ...

So far, we have found very little information about Kokanee. The little that we've found leads us believe that the community is historic.<1>

We've added Kokanee to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. If you can help us with Kokanee, please Contact Us.


We aren't confident of the location of Kokanee, so consider the above location as an estimate.<2>

The origin (or the toponymy) of Kokanee: Named from the Sinixt word for the land-locked Salmon that spawn in the area.

Time Zone: The area where Kokanee was located is in the Pacific Time Zone (PST/PDT) and observes daylight saving time. The time zone in French: PST- Heure Normale du Pacifique (HNP).

Note: If you leave Kokanee and travel east, you will soon leave Pacific Time and cross into the Mountain Time Zone (MST/MDT).

Kokanee would have been located in the (250) & (778)<3> area codes.

Footnotes ...

<1>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Kokanee, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<2>An 'estimated' location is one where we have been given GPS coordinates, but are unable to verify the accuracy of those coordinates. That said, we have some confidence that we have placed the marker near the actual location. A typical reason for being unable to verify a location is that it might be on private property or maybe historic and gone without an obvious trace.
<3>Area code (778) is an overlay for area code (250).
<4>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Kokanee) to Point B.If you need the driving distance (or directions), we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Kokanee. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from KokaneeOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Kokanee. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 49.6052, Longitude: -117.1240    
<5>While we're fans and frequent users of TripAdvisor, you should know that we're also members of the TripAdvisor affiliate program.
<6>If we have found a location and have questions about the accuracy of our information, we will simply say that the marker is 'in the vicinity'. We are not confident about the location and the position of our marker is only a rough guide. If we have too many doubts about the location, we will not include it in our database.
