Your invitation to the best summer parties in the southern NWT

Epic beach parties. Cosmic discoveries. Choose-your-own-paddle adventures. Days and nights of music. South Slave communities sure make the most of their summers by getting together and basking in what makes their home so special.

The best part? These welcoming towns want to share the fun with you.

Perched on the banks of the Mackenzie, this placid, timber-shrouded campground is an ideal basecamp for fishing the big river and exploring the town of Fort Providence, three kilometres downstream. You’ll find powered campsites, potable water, showers, picnic tables, fire grates – and incredible angling for grayling, pike, trout and “coney” (a.k.a. inconnu).

There’s a secret among Northerners in the NWT – yes, for much of the year the territory is chilly with frozen lakes and blanketed in snow, but there’s a region that heats up quicker than the rest of the territory, maybe even quicker than the rest of the country. We’re talking about the Banana Belt of the North – the Dehcho.

What to do in Fort Providence

Fort Providence is a key stop on any NWT road trip. You'll find it on the banks of the Mackenzie River, about equidistant from Yellowknife and Hay River. It’s a great place to fuel up, and take a day or two to get to know Zhahti Kųę or "Mission House Place," as Fort Prov was traditionally known.
