Keith worked in Fort St. John after leaving Hudson's Hope and we spent most of the summer and fall up there enjoying the beautiful country. This was a place that neither of us had visited before and it was far more beautiful than I'd imagined. Keith works 6 long days a week, but I was able to enjoy the sights with my camera in tow.
The days are long during mid June, it would be dusk about 11pm and by 3am it was dawn, and that was a treat to enjoy as well. The temperatures were not as hot as home in Kamloops, but we did enjoy summer weather. It can also get windy, which creates a problem with the RV awning if left out. You soon learn that it is far too difficult to put the awning back if the wind is blowing hard, and they can get ripped from the wind, so you're better off to just leave it rolled up.
If you're looking for a place to park your RV while enjoying the area, there is Beatton Provincial park out at Charlie Lake, which is located 13 km (8 mi) NW of Fort St John in Hwy 97, also known as the Alaska Highway. This is open year round and can accommodate RV's. Another RV park located at the northern end of town (Hwy 97) is Ross H. MacLean Rotary RV Park, and that one is open from May 1 to Sept. 30 yearly. Both of these parks give you access to Charlie Lake for fishing and recreational activities.
