Prince George, Beaches & Swimming
It's been hot outside! And what better way to cool off than going to the lake with some friends? We headed north on Highway 97 for about 30 minutes until we reached Bear Lake, which lies just off the highway. The lake as a beautiful sandy beach, and because it is fairly small it warms up to a comfortable temperature in the summer. While it is quite popular on hot summer days, the size of the beach ensures that it doesn't get crowded, and the shallow descend into the lake makes the beach a great place for inflatable rafts etc.
So, if you're looking to cool off in the Prince George area, be sure to consider Bear Lake.
Roam plenty and roam safely,
