Mud Lake is a small community just a few miles away from Happy Valley - Goose Bay and makes for a beautiful little side trip.

Mud Lake was settled around 1850 as trapping and fishing community, based on a non-wage economy: where trapping animals for furs and subsistence living, tending gardens and hunting and fishing were the norm. This little settlement experienced a boom between 1901 and 1910 when the Dickie Lumber Company from Nova Scotia set up lumber operations.
