Radar Lake

Dawson Creek
The Radar Lake-Bear Mountain Recreation Area is a nice spot to spend some time just outside of the city. This small lake is located just to the southwest of Dawson Creek. There’s a hiking trail and a boat launch, and the area is a well-known spot among bird watchers.
Location Tours & Sightseeing Family


Follow the “Dangerous Goods Route” (the bypass road) southwest of Dawson Creek to reach the Radar Lake-Bear Mountain Recreation Area. This is a great spot to enjoy some bird watching or take a short hike on the interpretive trail. There’s a boat launch available for public use as well.

The wooded area around the lake is well known for the wide variety of songbirds and other species. Bird watchers have spotted hermit thrushes, woodpeckers, western tanagers and many other birds that are native to Canada. There aren’t many additional amenities available, but it’s just a few minutes away from town if you forget to pack a lunch.
