Crooked River Provincial Park
 
Gateway to adventure north of Prince George 
 
"Enjoyed the easy in and out from the parking lot after enjoy some quality sun at the sandy beach"
 
The 963 hectare Crooked River Provincial Park is located 70 kilometres north of Prince George BC Canada on the John Hart Highway (Hwy #97). There are 3 lakes in the park, but non more popular than Bear Lake and its sandy beaches.
 
Crooked River Provincial Park Adventures 
 
For those seeking some outdoor adventure the Crooked River Provincial Park can help there too. Some of the outdoor activities include fishing, canoeing, hiking, swimming, windsurfing, beachcombing and camping.
 
History In The Park 
 
The park was once a travel route for our earliest Western Canada explorers like Alexander MacKenzie. The park itself was established in 1965 to protect the lakes and surrounding sub-boreal forests of white spruce, douglas fir and lodgepole pine trees.
 
Wildlife Viewing At Crooked River Park
 
As per reports the best spot for viewing wildlife is on the trail to Square Lake. The combination of forests and wetland make it ideal for beaver, birds and otters. 
 
On the rare occasion one might see a black bear, coyote or fox. There are said to be lynx in the region as well, but they are very elusive. Time your visit in the winter and the park is a staging area for Trumpeter Swans.

There is a 65 unit campground. Reservations are accepted online at Discover Camping. The campground is treed and private. Services include power, sani dump, showers, and flush toilets.
