Gold Panning

Test your gold panning skills on the Fraser River. You might just strike it rich! Gold pans can be borrowed free of charge from the Visitor Centre.

Horseback Riding

What greater way to embrace the land than on horseback! Triple J Ranch and First Equestrian Horse Ranch will saddle you up!


Hit a bucket of balls or play a round at one (or all!) of our three golf courses. Quesnel Golf Club, Richbar Golf & Gardens and Cresta Luna Country Golf. Learn more

Lakes & Rivers

We live in the land of lakes and rivers! Borrow a fishing rod from the Visitor Centre or take a paddle on Dragon Lake. You don’t have to go far to fish, swim or kayak.
