Fort St John is a city located in the province of British Columbia on Canada’s western coast. Surrounded by breathtaking open spaces and miles of natural beauty, the city welcomes visitors from far and wide to explore the region’s stunning lakes and the Peace River Valley. The beautiful Peace River runs alongside the city of Fort St John, providing much opportunity for outdoor activities in such impressive surroundings. The summer season draws many a fisherman or two to the tributaries of the Peace River, where they can fish for native Walleye or rainbow trout. For keen anglers there is the opportunity to hire a boat out and navigate the waterways in search of the perfect fishing spots – but if fishing is not your thing why not simply cruise along the lakes and take in the spectacular views. Charlie Lake is the ideal place to spot water birds in spring or to enjoy a picnic in one of the two parks situated on the shores there, Charlie Lake Provincial Park and Beatton Provincial Park. Hiking is also a favourite activity amongst those who visit this region. Why not explore the Fort St John Fish Creek Community Forest where you’ll find a 3.5 mile-long (5.6km) trail for you to master at your own speed. For those interested in discovering more about the North Peace region and its past, why not pay a visit to the Fort St John North Peace Museum which has exhibitions centred on its early founding and others that date all the way up to today. Uncover traditional tepees, a historic school room, and ancient fur artifacts.
