Moyie Lake is a small, narrow lake in southern British Columbia, located along the Moyie River. While building the Crowsnest Pass Railroad, this was the hardest part to build the tracks. The walls of the land around it is very steep and short. It is a lot like Swan Lake to the south in Montana. The lake is located between Cranbrook and Creston. The small town of Moyie is located at the south end of the lake.

Located 20 kilometres south of Cranbrook off Highway 3/95, Moyie Lake Park day-use area, boat launch and 111 site campground provides the only public access to the deep blue mountain waters of Moyie Lake.
