Fort St. James (population: 4,757, including surrounding First Nations and rural communities) is a tight knit community that offers an abundance of outdoor activities mostly focused around Stuart Lake.

The area has hundreds of lakes and rivers suited to various water activities, and a vast amount of rolling hills and forests to hike and mountain bike.

Outdoor Activities

Summer invites water-skiing across Stuart Lake, freshwater fishing excursions, ATVing and mountain biking escapades, and refreshing hiking routes. The nearby provincially recognized Nation Lakes Canoe Route is another popular destination. Winters consist of snowboarding and downhill skiing, and cross-county skiing at Murray Ridge just north of town, as well as ice fishing, snowmobiling, dogsledding, and even snow kiting (for those with a more adventurous spirit).
