Fort St. John, British Columbia's oldest interior community, is a small city (population: 17,402) with a young population full of fresh ideas.
People here are friendly, willing to lend a hand and offer up recommendations for restaurants, accommodations, and exciting things to do.
This local hospitality is complemented by the natural beauty of Fort St. John and the surrounding Peace River Valley, which offers endless opportunity for scenic drives, bird watching and wildlife viewing, fishing, hiking, and camping.
Outdoor Activities in Fort St. John
The mighty Peace River and lush green slopes of the Peace River Valley provide a varied terrain ideal for numerous seasonal outdoor activities. In summer, fish for walleye at Charlie Lake, one of the only natural lakes in British Columbia where anglers can keep their walleye catch. Cast a line from shore or a boat into a Peace River tributary, full of Arctic grayling and rainbow trout.
