Camping Oasis in Dawson Creek's back-yard.
While out riding the other day I came across Matthews Centennial Park, which is located approximately 1 hour biking or 10 minutes driving north of Dawson Creek just off Highway 97 on the corner of Road 237 and Sweetwater. This little park is ideal for families or friends to get together and camp, have a wiener roast and of course pull out the s’mores & or marshmallows. You can take the short trip to the out-skirts of the city and stay for an hour or a couple of days! There was even wood chopped and sitting by the outdoor site campfires. The park has a couple of public washrooms, lots of room for parking and a huge ball diamond. Matthews Centennial Park would be a great little vacation outdoors, without having to travel too far. You can really enjoy the ‘royalties’ of outdoor adventures; fresh air and no city lights or traffic. Once again, while out biking the rolling country-side of Dawson Creek I have stumbled across a little treasure in Dawson Creek's backyard. Until next time Happy Chains!!
