The area abounds in wildlife, so expect to see
both mule and white tail deer, black bear, moose,
bald eagles, and if you are in the right place at
the right time elk, caribou and grizzly bear.
The fur trading post, established in 1805, has
evolved into a charming, beautifully landscaped
community supported by grain farming, ranches,
game farms, forestry, hydro dams and oil/gas.
Visitors will follow much of the original First
Nations portage trail, built to bypass the
unnavigable rapids of the Peace Canyon, as they
drive to the W.A.C. Bennett Dam.
Centrally located, Beattie Park invites travelers
into the natural log Visitor Centre. Visitors can
pause here and enjoy the picnic area, playground
and gazebo. The outdoor pool complex makes
a great stop on a hot summer day or see the
Visitor Centre staff for directions to scenic
overnight camping.
There are many fascinating fossil displays in this
land of dinosaurs; they can be found at both dam
sites, the museum and at the Visitor Centre in
Beattie Park. However, if you crave a unique
prehistoric experience, visit the Gething Creek
Site to see actual dinosaur footprints! This site is
located in a somewhat remote area approximately
40 kilometres from town - additional information
and directions are available at the Hudson's Hope
Visitor Centre or Museum.
