Located near the entrance to Fort Simpson, and at the confluence of the Mackenzie and Liard rivers, groceries, restaurants and information centres are within walking distance. The Papal Site nearby commemorates the 1987 visit of Pope John Paul ll.
This is a great location for bird-watching and listening to the chorus of northern frogs! Many different species of birds have been documented here. The Snye is a shallow wetland ecosystem located between the main portion of the community and the southern shoreline of the river. Migratory waterfowl may be seen in season, including tundra swans and snow geese. A community trail around the perimeter of the community of Fort Simpson links several historic sites, and is readily accessible from the campsite. The trail winds its way around the golf course and allows for excellent opportunities for observing nature, including a variety of birds, reptiles and plants.
