Mackenzie (population: 4,539) is located within the Rocky Mountain Trench at the southern end of Williston Lake, one of the largest man-made reservoirs in North America.

Mackenzie offers a variety of outdoor recreational opportunities, with impressive winter snow conditions for snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, downhill skiing, skating, snowshoeing and ice fishing. Warmer, summer months offer great hiking, birding, mountain biking, camping, boating and fishing.

History buffs will appreciate that this forestry-based resource town was named after the famous explorer Alexander Mackenzie, who camped near the town site on his epic journey to the Pacific in 1793.

Morfee Lake is a hidden gem for hiking, boating or fishing within Mackenzie. Unnoticed upon entering town, it is approximately 2km/1.25mi away. Morfee Mountain is the nearest high point, and can be accessed for a great panoramic view of the area in the winter by snowmobiling, or in the summer by 4X4 vehicle.
