Peace River Campground offers    over 100 acres of wilderness camping for your enjoyment. You can make camp anywhere you like, including many places right on the beautiful Peace River's edge. During less busy times you can spend days out of site of other campers. While there are no utilities, picnic tables or other campground amenities, you are only a short walk to our hot showers, swimming pool, campground store and all the trappings of the "civilized" world. Because it is designed for use by the purist, only tents, including pop ups, are allowed. No trailers, motorhomes or generators to spoil the experience. If you are a 'real' tent camping, wilderness person, you will love it here. With the civilized world so close you can probably get the rest of your  family to join you.

Fossil Hunting
One of the popular activities while at the campground is Fossil Hunting.  Our mile and a quarter of river front provides ample areas for hunting fossils which range from sharks teeth to an almost complete Columbian Mammoth found in 1996.   Fossils can be found anywhere but two of the most prolific areas are at the boat ramp and the beach area.  This maybe because they provide easy access to the river.  You can walk the shore or even rent a canoe and find a new area.  The campground store sells various fossil sifters and digging tools or you can bring you own.  We have complimentary information to help you identify what you found.  Several large groups come several times a year and have lots of experts with them.  There are even guides that will take you on a trip on the river and help you find them.  If the weather and timing is right you may find "Cadillac"  Georges fossil hunting golden retriever at the boat ramp.  Go to the photo icon on our home page and click on Cadillac to read his sad story with the happy ending
