Dawson Creek


Dawson Creek, best known as the Alaska Highway Mile ‘0’ site or the “Capital of the Peace”, is a city located in northeastern British Columbia.  Dawson Creek (population: 10,994) is a community that celebrates its history, including the building of the world-famous Alaska Highway, and one of the last remaining original structures of the Alaska Highway, the Kiskatinaw Bridge.

There are many opportunities for outdoor recreation in Dawson Creek, including bird watching in the summer, fishing, or hiking and walking past waterfalls, alpine meadows, and mountain ridges.

Visit The Walter Wright Pioneer Village! A great place to tour old buildings and experience the look and feel of pioneer days in Dawson Creek. In summer months, visitors can also have a quick lunch and check out the gift shop. The Alaska Highway House is the newest Dawson Creek downtown attraction. This interpretive centre conveys what life was like during the Alaska Highway’s construction.

Of the BC Provincial Parks that we operate, Swan Lake and Kiskatinaw are within close proximity.
