Ross H Maclean Rotary RV Park

Our Park

The FSJ Rotary Club started the park in 1971. The club was able to negotiate a lease with the City of Fort St. John, who saw the project as a vital part of providing recreation options for the people of the North Peace and visitors passing through, THe first phase of included building a boat launch with the help of the City of Fort St. John, and then a boat dock. The next step was to build a large parking area for boaters to park their trucks and trailers. This was the beginning of what would be referred to as the "day use park" that would serve the residents who wanted access to Charlie Lake, Later the Rotary Club added a children's play area that included playground equipment. The parking lot was also expanded in the late 1990s to accommodate the growing demand.
 

The idea for an RV Park came about in the early 1980's.  The plan was to build the RV Park and have it as a fundraiser for the FSJ Rotary Club to complete local and international projects. It took over 20 years and a lot of volunteer time and money to finally complete the RV Park. We now have 69 sites, a building to house washrooms and laundry facilities, and a new office building. Funds raised by the park will be used to complete various local and international Rotary projects.
