Aug 20, 2018 - Smoke, Wasps & Lots to See - West on Hwy 16 to Hazelton

Up early this morning, working to get the Team Turvey crew organised before everyone stirred to life. A heckuva backdrop to do it, with the lake looking tranquil, and even a Bald Eagle flying around the property, before settling on a tree next door. It was going to be hard to leave, although we knew we’d be back in a week. We enjoyed another good chat over coffee and blueberry pancakes. Then it was time to hook up the trailer, and Team Turvey was on the road again, heading for Hazelton, Daniel sporting new pins on his Blue Jays hat,...

Jul 28, 2016 - The 3 Hazeltons July 28 -29

Every view here is dominated by the Roche de Boule Mountain. One can't help to not look for it when looking around the Hazeltons. We stayed at South Hazelton,travelled mostly to Old Hazelton and on the way out we passed thru New Hazelton. This can be accomplished in a matter of minutes as they are very close together.Old Hazelton though is where one should direct their attention to for the history of the area. This was the last stop for Steam ships that came up the Skeena River. A replica of the famous paddle wheeler the "Hazelton" sits...

It was exciting meeting all 22 RV tour members, and getting to know them. We had several orientations on how to caravan, and how to ‘slow down’ and ‘relax’ during our trip!

Jun 21, 2014 - Hazelton, BC

Hello Everyone, Hooray – we finally made it to Hazelton, BC, Canada where our Alaska Tour starts on June 26th! We arrived a few days early to give me time to finish up a few projects on the truck like change the oil and air filter, and give the truck and camper a good washing! I also have to come up with a good, easily removable, way to protect the scooter from stones since its right out front of the truck. That project is still to come… To get to Hazelton, we traveled thru Prince George and Burns Lake. We dry camped, for free, in multiple...

Instead of pressing on to Cassiar RV Park in Kitwanga, Sally had found Ksan Campground near Hazelton, a bit off the highway but not too far. So that’s where we stayed and a good choice it was. Everyone was teasing me about crossing the suspension bridge to get there but it was a piece of cake. Hazelton, located at the junction of the Bulkley and Skeena Rivers, is one of the oldest settlements in Northern British Columbia; its European settlement dates back to 1866 when the Collins Overland telegraph went through. Hazelton was the original...

Aug 17, 2012 - Ksan Campground

Stayed at Ksan Campground in Hazelton, BC for two nights in a FHU site. Once again, we especially enjoyed the free Wi-Fi while we have no cell phone or satellite TV service while in Canada. This is a recommended RV park. Note 1: On Sun., 08/19/12, we walked over and took a tour of the Ksan Historical Village & Museum which is located near the ancient village of Gitanmaax, at the confluence of the Bulkley and Skeena Rivers in the community of Hazelton, British Columbia. Their people are known as the Gitxsan First Nation people. Note 2: While...

Jul 20, 2012 - Hazelton, BC

Ksan Campground. Very nice campground run by one of the native Indian tribes. Sites are large and pretty level with grassy areas between. The campground is next to a restored native village. There are a lot of natives in this area. The guy at the office here said that they also own a restaurant in town and the gas station. They're upgrading alot in the area. This campground is a hidden gem - a little off the highway. Started out with nice sun this AM and rough road. Long area of construction, but once past that it was a great road. We had 2...

Jun 5, 2012 - Day 15 Vanderhoof to Hazelton BC

Today we logged 216 miles. It's been raining for almost 24 hours straight. The river we have been following is brown and swollen. And of course we're camping tonight right next to it! Not too much for sight seeing today. We stopped at a wayside rest area and saw a cairn with a stone in it supposedly from tintagel castle in Scotland, home of King Arthur. Our next stop was in Houston, salmon capital of Canada. Of course we had to take a picture of the world's largest fly fishing pole! The tulips and daffodils were in full bloom. No wildlife...

Another day traveling west on the Yellowhead Highway through rolling hills. Loved the sign in once small town reading “World Class Chicken Races”! Wish we’d been around to watch THAT one! Scenery again improved as we moved further west with some beautiful mountain views. Most of the day we once again had fantastic weather, but I had heard that north of us had up to 14” of snow, so after we got into a few snow flurries, we decided we’d better find a grocery and restock the milk and bread in case we got snowed in along the way. Snow got heavy...

July 25th, Hazelton BC. Today we drove 220 miles. The day was a one sweatshirt day for the most part. Mostly sunny skies. We left our campsite at the junction of routes 37 and 37a and headed to Hyder Alaska. We saw a glacier on the way and another one on the way out, this was a larger one but there was no pulloff to get a picture. . We walked the boardwalk through the marsh area at the end of Portland canel in Stewert BC. We then crossed into Hyder .We went 3 miles back a very pot holed, washboarded dirt road to see if we could see any...

Aug 13, 2009 - Hazelton, BC - K'san Campground

Our trip from Terrace to Hazelton started with a trip to the Terrace Ford dealer to get an oil change which only took about an hour. We then only needed to travel a little less than 90 miles to get to Hazelton. Hazelton, BC is about six miles further off the Yellowhead Highway than New Hazelton, BC and is the Old Town of the First Nation Indians. The original natives who occupied Canada before European settlers arrived are call First Nation people. Their culture has been kept alive by their descendants and thrives in little settlements like...

2009 Alaska

Aug 2, 2009 - Old Hazleton

We were on the road about 10 hours today, only stopped for 2:15 hours, driving 432 miles, not many photo opportunities, the view the entire way was the same, trees, lakes, watch for moose signs, hay fields and very few towns, described as small at best except Prince George. We did go through Houston BC. The lack of towns contributed to our progress on the road, no shopping, although we did have to stop at a Bakery, quite a selection in a mall (yes she found a mall even out here) at Burns Lake. The driving is more difficult than before, the...
