Two provincial park campgrounds, several RV parks, and the wilderness terrain of the Rocky Mountain make camping highly accessible in and around Fort St. John.
Set out on a wilderness camping adventure at Graham-Laurier Provincial Park and Redfern-Keily Provincial Park, or stay in town and go hiking, fishing, or bird watching before a relaxing night of big-sky camping.
