Beaumont Provincial Park is beautifully located on the Fraser Lake, west of
Vanderhoof. It also marks the eastern edge of an area known as the Lakes District, comprising over 300 fish-filled lakes. This truly is prime fishing country; Far enough south to grow the big fish, but not far enough south that it has been overfished. Fishing for kokanee, char, burbot, rainbow grout and
even sturgeons is good in Fraser Lake.
The town of Fraser Lake lies on a chunk of land sloping gently down to its namesake lake. In the 1840s, Beaumont was the site of historic Fort Fraser, and there are still a few signs of the habitation around the park.
Beaumont Provincial Park provides 49 private campsites, the site has open views of the big lake, and the breeze that blows here helps keep the mosquitoes away. Facilities provided include flush toilets, water, wood,
and sani-station during the summer months. Much of the park is wheel chair
accessible. The campground is open from May to September and fees are collected during this time. Park then closes due to snow and weather conditions.
A pleasant spot on a summer's day is Beaumont Provincial Park which has a day-use as well as a sandy beach for swimming. A new self-guided interpretive trail offers eight signs that provide information on plants, animals, and history of the area.
Beaumont Provincial Park is located on Highway 16 in Northern British Columbia, just west of Fort Fraser and 134 km west of Prince George.
