The city of Williams Lake (population: 12,000) has rural charm intrinsic to its ranching culture and gold rush history.

Williams Lake is located in a sheltered valley of the vast Interior Plateau of central British Columbia, 552km/343mi north of Vancouver and 240km/149mi south of Prince George. Situated on the north shore of a lake of the same name, and surrounded by tree clad, trail-laced hillsides, Williams Lake is a natural jumping-off point for a myriad of outdoor activities.

Take part in the heart-stopping action of whitewater rafting, experience the exhilaration of single track mountain biking or watch wranglers at work during the world-class Williams Lake Stampede. Or enjoy the peace and tranquility of a stroll along the lakeshore of the Scout Island Nature Centre and be immersed in birdsong.
