Prince George, Beaches & Swimming

When it gets really hot here in Prince George, one of our favorite activities is floating down the Nechako River. Whether you only have an hour or the better part of an afternoon, there is a float for you!
You can jump in as far up the river as Wilkins Park in Miworth and get out as far down the river as Cottonwood Island Park, spending up to 3+ hours sunning yourself as you peacefully float to your destination.
Some float on large multi-person tubes, some on air mattresses, some just in a life jacket. I personally like to float with a pool noodle, making maximum use of the cool water.
The river float is best with a group of people, some parking their car(s) at the beginning of the float, some parking at the end to cut down commute time.
So whether you float from the Nechako Flats to the Foothills Bridge, or from Wilkins Park to Cottonwood Island Park, come join us on the river this summer. I know that's where I'll be!
