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).
