Summer in Saddle Hills
From parks and camping to hiking, fishing and boating, Saddle Hills has a great deal to offer the traveler during the summer months.
Several of our communities and some of our neighbours hold agricultural fairs, rodeos and parades during the summer months.

Throughout the county a number of parks, campgrounds, playgrounds and recreation facilities offer a full range of opportunities for recreation.
Birders and wildlife watchers can enjoy a day or evening at Jack Bird Pond (3.5 km SE of Moonshine Lake) or at the McQueen's Slough just across the BC border near Dawson Creek.

The Peace River
Kayakers, canoeists and power boaters can enjoy the Peace River which forms our Northern border by using the Dunvegan Boat Launch or from the boat launch at Cotillion Campground.
For a look back at the history of the fur trade in Western Canada, nearby the Historic Dunvegan Historic Site offers some exceptional insights.
