Mackenzie, BC
Part of the BC Adventure Network. Over a million web site visitors annually !

The town of Mackenzie, British Columbia, was named after the famous explorer Alexander Mackenzie, who camped near the townsite on his epic journey to the Pacific in 1793.

Mackenzie, located within BC's Northern Rocky Mountain Trench, is known as the "Gateway to Williston Lake" the largest man-made lake in Canada. Once in Mackenzie, you don't have to travel far to experience the natural unspoiled British Columbia wilderness that provides ample opportunities for hiking, mountain biking, camping, wildlife viewing and photography.

Surrounded by a variety of lakes, rivers and streams, this area is a fisherman's paradise. Visit picturesque Morfee Lake, located minutes from downtown, and enjoy boating, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, swimming or just lounging on the sandy beach. Enjoy nine scenic holes of golf on a pristine course, or practice your swing at the Mackenzie Golf & Country Club.
