The Stein River Basin comprises some 265,000 acres of presently inaccessible forest land. Located due east of Lytton and a direct tributary of the Fraser River, the Stein River Basin represents a major natural resource in terms of its timber, recreation, wildlife, fisheries and grazing potentials, Being presently untouched by any development except some mineral exploration, the area became the center of public controversy late in 1973 and early in 1974 when it was learned that the Forest Service was studying the potential of opening the are up for development.
