Moberly Lake is along British Columbia Highway 29 in northern British Columbia, Canada, and named for Henry John Moberly, a fur trader who lived on the lake. It is served by the Chetwynd Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) detachment.
In 1915, the outsider settlement comprised 16 people (Fort George Herald, 9 Oct 1915).
Other Danezaa regarded the lake as a place of mystique. For them, it was 'the Lake with a hole through it' or 'the lake with no bottom'. According to their lore, the lake was the dwelling place of an ancient creature that came to the surface after long intervals below the water.
