This lake was named for W.C. (Charlie) Chalmers, one of the first settlers in the Waterhole district in 1911. In the spring of 1915 Chalmers purchased a steam-powered sawmill, which he and his sons put to work at their timber berth 20 kilometres north of his homestead near the lake that now bears his name.

Approximately 26 km north-west of Fairview.
