Dinosaur Lake

Located 7 km (4 miles) south of Hudson’s Hope off Hwy. 29.

Dinosaur Lake was created when the Peace Canyon Dam was completed in 1980 and named for the fossils of dinosaur footprints that were covered when the area was flooded. Bring your boat as you won’t want to miss going upstream to the bottom of the WAC Bennett Dam to look for eagles. Keep your eyes open for the abundant wildlife on the hills and beaver and fish in the lake.
