Fort St. John has limitless opportunities for outdoor recreation.
Hike the 5.6km/3.5mi of trails at the Fort St. John Fish Creek Community Forest, spot a variety of water birds at Charlie Lake during the spring migration period, boat and fish the area's vast network of waterways and lakes.
In winter, stick to cross-country ski trails at Beatton Provincial Park, or carve a new path along the area's flat prairie land. Snowmobiling at Redfern-Keily Provincial Park (250km/155mi northwest Fort St. John) in the Rocky Mountains is another great winter option – sledders can even wilderness camp overnight.
To experience Fort St. John's diverse history and culture, visit the Fort St. John North Peace Museum, or catch a show at the North Peace Cultural Centre.
