Lakelse Lake provincial park and surroundings is a spectacular place to camp and spend time recreating at all times of the year. The natural setting of the campgrounds in a tall old growth Forests is very beautiful, lush and peaceful. The campsites are surrounded by large, tall evergreens with lush green underbrush where numerous birds and animals abound. On the lake one can see swans in winter , spring and fall as some swans stay over the winter where the warmer hot Springs waters keep the lake open. The lake is very exceptional for water sports, fishing and boating as it is 13 kilometres long by 2 across in some areas. There are numerous soft sandy Beaches around the lake with shallow, warmer waters to swim and frolic. The fishing opportunities are superb with excellent cutthroat and rainbow fishing along the many weed beds that sruuound the lake. There are two natural, meandering creeks at the south end weed beds to canoe or kayak up through the forested swamps where wildlife viewing opportunities abound for seeing moose, bears, beaver, muskrat, wolves and many species of bird life like eagles, Ospreys and waterfowl.This park and lake environment is a superb , natural and enjoyable recreational area in a pristine, mountainous setting where one can also canoe into the river mouth when the lake is too windy. A must area to camp and recreate when in the northwest corner of B.C. A great place to take kids to be close to nature. A great place to snowshoe, cross country ski and hike in the winter months.

I was recently here while waiting for the train (which is notoriously late) and although it was a little crowded, I was visually entertained the whole time. Whether you're here to wait for the train or not, this place is a treasure trove. Plenty of local crafts for sale here - books, indigenous prints/carvings, jewelry, etc. as well as local information at a range of prices. It's evident there is plenty of artistic talent in the area and it's amazing how much stuff they can get into a relatively small space! A great one stop shop kind of place if you're wanting to purchase some memories of your time in Terrace,

The Skeena Valley Farmers Market (SVFM), conveniently located on Market Street, has been in existence for a couple of decades. In that time, the Market has only continued to grow and thrive, developing a loyal following both inside and outside the Terrace area. The organizers (all volunteers) continue to do yeoman’s duty to ensure the market runs like a well-oiled machine between May and September of each year.
What makes the Farmers Market stand out, for me, is the emphasis on local: local produce, local baked goods, local arts, local crafts . . . you name it. At the market, you buy local and eat local. This, I think, is a good strategy because it helps to develop pride in and of community. Wandering around the site, you definitely do get that strong sense of pride: many of the vendors can and often do identify locals by name. The Farmers Market, then, enhances social capital.
In enhancing that social capital, the Market becomes a strong and firm place for socializing – this is often done as goods are exchanged, or while fabulous food is being consumed, or while listening to many of the local live Performances on stage. In that regard, one could easily make the argument that the farmers market functions as a social and cultural portal, bringing one and all together for a few hours each Saturday.
That said, the diversity of SVFM reflects both the people and the products on offer: At any given time, you can get any number of local veggies, fruit, baked goods, ethnic cuisine, seafoods, canned and dried products, arts/crafts and wonderful live music; all of which enhances the overall atmosphere.
For me, though, I go mostly for the food. There are three food vendors that stand out in that regard: the Samosa House (which is OK); Northcoast Poppers (absolutely LOVE the kettle-corn!); and Beyond Burgers (excellent food, but my one major criticism: if you don’t show up early, i.e.: before 11AM, they often run out of items like their signature lobster roll . . . . and then you are just left with standard fare, so the “Beyond” kind of fades away quickly). In short, the SVFM is just as much a foodie paradise as it is a shopper’s paradise. I just wish it was open for more than 4 hours on Saturdays, especially during the clear-skied summers!

Absolutely love walking out to Hai Lake or up Mount Herman, very peaceful setting, incredible views, quiet, hardly ever any people around to disturb one's daydreaming.
Forest walk down to the lake is spectacular for its old growth trees. The short (over 1 km) walk does require good shoes, it can get slippery, some of the terrain is a bit steep, that's why the walk is considered to of moderate difficulty. Lake is great for dogs to cool down, but a bit too shallow for people to swim. Rustic toilet just before one reaches the lake.

Park at the information sign unless have a good 4x4 for last kilometre. Its about a 20-30 minute walk from here to the trailhead, then about 1 1/2 to 1st lake with places to pitch your tents and a food cache. This is a moderate hike, have taken children on this hike. After the lake the trail gets a little steeper and more alpine. If you plan on trying to go to the very top of sleeping beauty prepare for an overnighter. It takes about another hour after the lake to get on top of next platue which offers spectacular views. Horseflies can be absolutly horrible at times as is most of the other Mountains in the area.I live here so climb it on a regular basis, sometimes just to walk the dogs, enjoy

This site provides information about the Gitselasu, the people of the Kitselas Canyon in the Skeena River, 20 km from Terrace. There is also information about the paddle boats that navigated this difficult part of the river. Along the 1.2 km track, which passes through peaceful forest, there are notices about the plants and how they were used by the locals long ago, as well as other historical facts. At the river there is a well built viewing platform, making it easy to see the river. This site is being developed and improvements are ongoing, and we found this to be a much more interesting walk than the nearby Kleanza Creek Provincial Park.

Kitsumkalum provincial park is a user maintained, free camping with toilets provided on the scenic , natural and rustic shoreline along the southern edge of Kalum lake. There is room for 8 to 12 units if everyone cooperates and utilizes the provided space. There is an awesome half kilometre stretch of fine sandy beach in front of the campsite areas. The water here is quite cold but the kids will show you up by staying in longer in the shallower edges of the sandy shores where the sun warms the sand more. The pristine green,cold and clear Goat creek enters the beach towards the southern end of Kalum lake where it runs towards Redsand lake. Fishing opportunities are great along here especially in the fall for coho.There are magnificent mountain views in all directions and most clearcuts have greened in lushly over the years and it makes for beautiful photos.The long beach has a lot of dr fit wood for the kids to climb on. It is a superbly wonderful place to camp with kids and canoe along the shoreline as it can get very windy at different times of the day. There are trails to take kids with soft moss and minimal underbrush to pick berries or mushrooms or build forts. Go early as some set up for weeks , bring your own wood and toilet supplies, bug spray and sunscreen.The camping is close so get along with new neighbors and keep the noise down as it is mostly repeat locals here every weekend. Cameras are a must here as you will get amazing scenery shots at several times of the day and at sunsets. There are opportunities to see wildlife here as a beautiful nature setting where moose, bear, lynx and other wildlife can be spotted as well as Eagles , Ospreys and other bird life, so take binoculars as well. When the waters here are calm it is like glass, when rough it can be very choppy and mean but very peaceful to listen to the wind and waves. The campsite areas are fairly shady most of the day as tall evergreens surround you and the mountain behind is tall and steep. Take home the garbage you create and leave it clean as you found it for the next camper.
