Sweetwater! Quirky Trip Experience!

35 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents153 acres · Fraser Fort George E, BC
What you will find at Sweetwater; An undeveloped campsite for tents and RV's with wild camping and few amenities, A Rustic BnB log cabin (campers can access toilet/shower/laundry if it's not booked), A Quaint Country Store with homespun foods and gifts, Fun Workshops and Classes (like pottery and breadmaking), Woodfired breads and Pizzas with "room service" food options or book a woodfired pizza dinner experience! Look up Becky's Farmhouse Market on Facebook for more information. Unplug and enjoy all that nature has to offer on 150 acres of trees and hay fields with your very own creek. Endless crown land borders the property and will allow you to roam for hours on your snowmobiles, quads, horses etc. Secret Lake is an easy 4x4 trail within 15 min that has a floating dock you can untie from the tree and pole out to the middle and fish for trout. There's a little firepit and cabin there and only the locals know about it so you will have privacy. Trapping Lake is at the end of the road and is accessible to the public for swimming, kyaking and fishing with small boats. Chubb lake is also nearby and where you would take the family swimming in a park-like setting. Just 1/2hr south of Prince George and 10 minutes north of Hixon, it allows you to experience an off-grid feel yet have amenities nearby! Every type of camper is welcome here from tying a hammock between 2 trees to a 45 ft RV with slides. There's tons of parking for RV's, semi rigs, horse trailers etc. It's a beautiful acreage and you can choose to stay wherever you like within the property boundaries just be sure to leave the land as you found it and follow fire bans. There are a few semi-level spots suitable for RV's and plenty of areas that can be accessed by vehicle. There are 153 acres of treed privacy and a creek you can camp right beside. If you MUST have power and water there is a hook in the well pump house. Or if you prefer something more glamorous rent the 2bd log house for the weekend :) I own all the property on both sides of the road all the way down to Horrocks Rd. You may choose to camp on your right side in one of the open hay fields or the treed section between them or you may choose to turn left just before Horrocks rd (where theres no fencing and the old hay barn that's being dismantled) and go exploring to find a creekside location. If you prefer a more level spot or prefer to be closer to other people you can turn left onto Horrocks Rd and left into the driveway of the house with the red roof. You may camp around the house (like in the backyard down beside the creek)

Camping near Prince George guide

Overview

Set in the geographic center of British Columbia on the Nechako and Fraser rivers, Prince George lies in the middle of the forested Interior Plateau and serves as a jumping-off point for RVers heading north on the Great Northern Circle Route to the Alaska Highway. The area rewards adventurous campers looking to get away from wifi hotspots and embrace true solitude, but you don’t need to leave “PG” to go camping, as there are over 120 parks and recreation areas within city limits, most of which have RV campgrounds. Fishing, hiking, wildlife viewing, and (in winter) Nordic skiing and snowshoeing are popular area activities.

Where to go

Teapot Mountain

About 40 minutes north of Prince George by road, Teapot Mountain is a popular area day hike near a variety of campgrounds with sites for tent camping or RV spots with full hookups. The 2-kilometre route takes visitors up for views of Summit Lake and the area surrounding Highway 97. Try it in winter with snowshoes.

​Eskers Provincial Park

This day-use park east of the city is well-trafficked for its fishing, mountain bike trails, and canoeing. Consider making a stop at Eena Lake for more first-rate fishing and campsite options on your way in or out of the park.

Tabor Mountain Ski Resort Area

Popular for the Tabor Mountain Ski Resort, this area draws winter travelers for its cross-country skiing and summer visitors for its mountain biking. Trails are numerous, and there are options for all skill levels.

When to go

May, June, and July have long, 18-hour-plus days, but these months can be buggy, especially if following a wet spring. Mid-July to mid-October are ideal, with comfortable daytime temperatures and lots of sunshine.

Know before you go

  • As the largest city in the central B.C, Prince George has standard retail services, including Costco, Wal-Mart, and Canadian Tire.
  • Summer campground reservations may be required at the two nearby provincial parks, though the Prince George region is not heavily travelled compared to other parts of BC.
  • Private campgrounds near major highways typically offer fast wifi and showers, while campgrounds out at remote lakes are most often primitive and require self-sufficiency.
