Chetwynd, Beaches & Swimming

There's no need to travel long distances to spend time searching for treasures at the beach if you live in Chetwynd - just head down highway 29 to Twidwell Bend, and explore the shores of the Pine River.
Just 10 km from downtown Chetwynd and accessed by a short gravel road near the bridge, the shores of the Pine River have great opportunities for finding driftwood and unique types of rocks. If you're lucky, you might even find a fossil or two!
The soft, warm sand is a favourite place for my kids to play - we just have to watch them closely as the current is quite strong in the river. We often see beavers swimming about in the water as well as big schools of tiny minnows.
