Attractions, Activities, and Events
The tranquil town of Princeton is the perfect destination to get away from it all. Enjoy the clear skies and fresh air while you relax at one of our quiet lakes or get active and hike or bike one of our many trails.
Nestled in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains and at the junction of the Tulameen and Similkameen rivers, Princeton is the perfect vacation choice. There are a myriad of outdoor activities to tempt the visitor; everything from hiking and canoeing to rock hounding and gold panning. The rivers attract the kayakers, rafters and canoeists, while the peaceful lakes act as a lure for the fisherman, camper and bird watcher. The avid photographer will be thrilled with the scenic mountains, peaceful vistas and blue skies.
In the spring and summer, the visitor can enjoy recreational activities from biking or hiking wilderness adventures to horseback riding experiences.
Winter introduces an entirely new set of activities from ice fishing to x-country skiing on groomed trails to snowmobiling.
