Comaplix is the name of former mining town on the Incomappleux River in the northern Arrow Lakes region of British Columbia's Kootenay Country in Canada. The name of the town and an adjacent mountain and creek are derived from that of the river, which is an Okanagan word meaning "point at the head of the lake".[1] The location, now flooded, is on the northeast side of Beaton Arm of Upper Arrow Lake,[2] near the sites of Beaton and Camborne (also ghost towns, though Beaton remains partly inhabited today).
