Princeton Is a Must-See

The town of Princeton is beautifully situated in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains, where the Tulameen and Similkameen Rivers meet. It is the southern gateway to the British Columbian interior and offers some of the best year-round outdoor recreation British Columbia has to offer. That, combined with its vibrant community spirit, makes Princeton an outstanding vacation destination.


Enjoy the Natural Beauty of Princeton

Princeton's mountains, valleys, rivers, and lakes lend themselves to camping, swimming, canoeing, kayaking, hunting, fishing, hiking, and cycling, making it the "Best Kept Secret in British Columbia." In the winter, the Princeton area caters to those wanting fun in the snow. You can snow mobile the trails around Penask Mountain or cross-country ski at Allison Lake Provincial Park.
