About Williams Lake
Williams Lake, BC, is one of the midpoints stops between Kamloops and Prince George. Williams Lake is one of the largest cities, by population of the metropolitan area, in the Cariboo after neighbouring Quesnel. The city is famous for the Williams Lake Stampede, which was once the second largest professional rodeo in Canada, after only the Calgary Stampede. Held annually, on the Canada Day long weekend, Williams Lake Stampede plays host to many top cowboys and international rodeo competitors from Canada and the United States, most of which continue on the circuit to the Calgary Stampede, the following weekend.
Watch their local Central Interior Hockey League, the Williams Lake Stampeders. Williams Lake Golf and Tennis Club, situated on the south side of town, is home to a championship 18-hole course and full-size tennis courts. There is also a full-service restaurant known as the Fox’s Den. Or visit Scout Island, which is 9.69 ha (23.9 acres) in size, and is both a park and a nature area. It consists of a beach, picnic area, boat launch and several trails through mainly natural environment. Scout Island is actually two islands that are connected to the west end of Williams Lake by a causeway. Located on the island is the Nature House, which provides a view of the marsh next to the island. It is run by the Williams Lake Field Naturalists and provides information, displays and programs dealing with the local environment.
Williams Lake, much like the rest of British Columbia, is susceptible to temperature highs and lows during the seasons.
