Viewscape: Little Heffley and Heffley Lake are situated near the eastern edge of the Fraser Plateau, part of the Interior Plateau Physiograph Region. The lakes lie in a dead ice pocket at the end of the Pleistocene. The area around the lake is covered by Douglas fir, with clearings that have houses, summer cottages, ranches, farms and logging.

Shoreline: Except for the broad littoral shelf at the west end, the drop-off into deep water from the shore is moderate. The shoreline is for the most part organic and there is a thick growth of aquatic vegetation found around the shore. The riparian fringe around the lake is made up of cottonwood, water birch, snowberry, red orsier dogwood, willows, reeds, sedges and cattails. The backshore vegetation consists of areas dotted with Douglas fir and grass cover.
