Deer Lake is a town in the western part of the island of Newfoundland in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.The town derives its name from Deer Lake and is situated at the outlet of the upper Humber River at the northeastern end of the lake.HistoryThe first settlers in the area arrived from Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia in 1864. Originally loggers and trappers, the settlers later took up farming.In 1922, a work camp was set up to support the International Pulp and Paper company. The camp would later become the town of Deer Lake. A formal townsite was constructed in 1925 and included a railroad terminal, churches and a small hospital. The town was incorporated in 1950.The airport was built in 1955 and is one of the town's major employers. In 2004, Deer Lake Regional Airport began plans to redesign the airport terminal, completed in June 2007. The primary population that the airport serves is approximately 55,000. The effect was from Rocky Harbour to Corner Brook and around Deer Lake.EconomyThe town is located in Division No. 5 and is the gateway to the Great Northern Peninsula, owing to an important highway interchange on the Trans-Canada Highway. It is the closest major community to Gros Morne National Park and is home to the Deer Lake Regional Airport.Whether you only want to go to Deer Lake, or have a whole adventure planned, Inspirock has you covered with our user-friendly Canada trip planning app.
