  • Learn the town's story at the Fraser Lake Museum, located at the Visitor Information Centre. Itself a fine example of log-home construction, the museum displays remnants of the rich history of the Fraser Lake area, and an informative display on Dakelh culture.
  • The attractive Fraser Lake has three sandy beaches and nearly 20 kilometres of shoreline. Watersport activities are obviously popular in this area, and include swimming, waterskiing and windsurfing.
  • Open views of Fraser Lake and a breeze that keeps the mosquitoes away await campers at Beaumont Provincial Park. Vehicle/tent campsites are available, just off Highway 16 near the community of Fraser Lake. In the 1840s, Beaumont was the site of the historic Fort Fraser, and there are still a few signs of the habitation around the park.
  • Climb the 25-million year old lava beds and volcanic cone of the extinct Red Rock Volcano. Trees over one hundred years old still thrive inside the volcano's crater. Trails to Red Rock, also known as Table Top Mountain, lead from the Stellaquo Village.
  • Watch for Trumpeter Swans on the Nautley River and the area between Stellako River and Fraser Lake, which is used as a nesting area. The bridge west of Fraser Lake is a good vantage point from which to view the largest waterfowl in North America and the largest swan in the world.
  • Cross to the north side of Fraser Lake to view the three sets of Native pictographs located on Indian reserve #2.
  • See one of the shortest rivers in the world; the Nautley River drains Fraser Lake into the Nechako River. Less than one kilometre in length, the Nautley River is an important traditional salmon fishing spot for the local Nadleh Whut'en First Nation people, as it has been for ages.
  • Hikers can follow the Mouse Mountain Hiking Trails, and the Ormond Creek Trail on the north shore of Fraser Lake - trailhead just beyond Peterson's Point Campsite. The same trails are used for cross-country skiing in winter.
  • Mouse Mountain Hiking Trails provide an added bonus in the fall, with a splendid view of hundreds of swans gathering in preparation for their journey south for the winter.
  • Some of Canada's best sports fishing is found in the Vanderhoof/Bulkley Valley region. Summer sees a great annual salmon run on the Stellako River, between Fraser Lake and Francois Lake to the east, making it a superb spin-casting and flyfishing river. The host of small lakes in the area provide excellent fishing for rainbow trout. Fishing in British Columbia.
  • Paddlers can challenge the Stellako and Nechako Rivers, suitable for novices and experienced canoeists. Located on the edge of the Lakes District, which comprises over 300 lakes, canoeing is very popular in this area, and you are seldom far from a paddle place.
  • Golf: Molyhills Golf Club is located in the heart of the beautiful Glenannan tourist area, on the shores of East Francois Lake. Molyhills offers a short but challenging par 36 golf course, with scenic views of Francois Lake. Golf Vacations in British Columbia.
  • Winter is a great time to be in the valley, with outdoor activities including cross-country skiing, snowmobiling and ice fishing, with hockey and curling played in indoor facilities.
  • Don't miss the Mouse Mountain Days festival over the first week in July.
  • See the best of Northern BC on one of the Circle Tours that capture the wonders of the north. The Circle Tour of Northern British Columbia incorporates the Alaska Highway through the Rocky Mountain foothills to Watson Lake in the Yukon, linking with the Stewart/Cassiar Highway and Yellowhead Highway 16 in the south. The Inside Passage Tour and The Native Heritage Tour follow the same route, from Port Hardy on Vancouver Island north by ferry to Prince Rupert. Catch another ferry to the Queen Charlotte Islands, or venture east on the Yellowhead Highway to Prince George, and south through the peaceful Cariboo to Vancouver along the historic Cariboo Wagon Road.
