Fort St. James' landscape of flat stretches and rolling hills and its location amid a vast network of waterways makes it a natural hub for outdoor recreation.
Choose from mountain biking, hiking, fishing, canoeing, and downhill skiing.
Fort St. James is also renowned for its nationally significant historic sites.
In the summer, many of the town's recreational opportunities are focused around Stuart Lake – water activities such as boating, swimming, jet skiing, wakeboarding, and waterskiing, to name a few. Fishing for rainbow trout either in Stuart Lake, Stuart River, or nearby freshwater lakes is another main draw here.
