Highways 16 27 97

Branching Highways 16, 27 and 97 offer nature enthusiasts a wealth of wildlife viewing opportunities. The Fraser Plateau accounts for nearly half of the entire region. It is a comparatively flat-forested area with numerous lakes, small streams and marshlands. It is known as the heart of moose country. From spawning salmon to roaming moose, you’re sure to experience nature at its best. Be sure to keep your camera handy, as you never know what you will come across. Crooked River Provincial Park lies within the Fraser Basin and contains three beautiful lakes within this 970-hectare park. The centre of activity for this park, an hour drive north of Prince George, is beach-fringed Bear Lake. The fine, sandy beaches are some of the best in the region and popular with swimmers and sunbathers.
