Hudson's Hope
British Columbia

Land of Dinosaurs & Dams
Hudson's Hope is situated midway between Chetwynd and Ft. St. John along Highway 29. This route that follows the Peace River, is the most scenic in the area. Bald eagles and wildlife are in abundance and can be viewed and photographed in any season. The open river brings winter hoarfrost to cover the trees and bushes adding an extra sparkle to the winter landscape. One unique feature in the area is Williston Lake, one of the largest man made lakes, created during the building of the W.A.C. Bennet Dam.

When the dams were being built in the area, a lot of dinosaur fossils were unearthed. The Hudson's Hope Museum contains one of the finest dinosaur fossil and footprint collections in the Peace River area as well as displaying many local artifacts from the early trapping, fur trading and coal mining industries. Each summer the museum hosts an exhbition covering a segment of our history.
