Williams Lake is centrally located to offer a wide variety of outdoor activities.

And with several lakes and rivers just a quick drive from town, water activities such as fishing, boating, rafting and kayaking/canoeing are all popular here. Hikers and mountain bikers will find plenty to explore along nature trails and in the surrounding forests and hillsides.

Bull Mountain, located north of Williams Lake, offers dozens of kilometers/miles of groomed trails, including a portion that is lit for night skiing.
