The Peace River country surrounding Hudson's Hope has great parks and some of the best wildlife viewing opportunities in British Columbia.
Look for mule deer, whitetail deer, moose, elk, black bears, coyotes, beavers, foxes, lynx and more. Wolves are a more rare sight, but are sometimes spotted in the forest shadows.
Nearby provincial parks, such as Moberly Lake Provincial Park and Butler Ridge Provincial Park, are good spots to seek out local wildlife. The Peace River valley and the W.A.C. Bennett Dam also offer wildlife viewing opportunities.

The park is also home to a large number of songbirds, as well as a host of small furry critters.
