In 1793, the famous explorer Alexander Mackenzie camped near what is now a beautiful community bearing his name.
Mackenzie the town carries forward not only the name but also Alexander Mackenzie’s spirit of adventure and discovery. The district of Mackenzie was virtually carved out of the wilderness in the mid 1960s to service large pulp and lumber manufacturing facilities. Forest industry operations continue as the primary economic engine of Mackenzie.
Mackenzie lies at the southern end of Williston Lake, the largest man-made reservoir in North America. The lake was formed as a result of the W.A.C. Bennet Dam being built on the Peace River, and stretches over 200 kilometres north from Mackenzie.
The town’s tranquil location in the Rocky Mountain Trench makes it a perfect place for visitors to set off from on hiking, camping, canoeing, fishing and other outdoor adventures.
Location: Mackenzie is located in the Central Interior of British Columbia, lying at the bottom of the Omineca Mountain Range, with the Rocky Mountains to the east. Mackenzie is 120 miles (185 km) north of Prince George and 18 miles (27 km) west of the junction of Highway 39 and Highway 97.
