Princeton (pop. 2,700) is the largest town in the Similkameen. You’ll find it at the confluence of the Tulameen and Similkameen Rivers and at the junction of BC Highways 3 and 5A. It’s a 90-minute drive from the Okanagan Valley and a three-hour drive from the Lower Mainland via Hwy 3-Crowsnest Hwy. You can also fly charter or private planes into the Princeton Airport. Folks come to Princeton to get away from it all. Princeton is surrounded by ranchlands, rivers, mountains, and lakes. There is an abundance of outdoor recreational activities here including legendary fishing, cycling the Kettle Valley Rail Trail portion of the Trans Canada Trail, and hiking, mountain biking or horseback riding on the China Ridge Trails. Take the time to get reacquainted with yourself and take a leisurely float down the Similkameen River, or paddle your way to bliss on the lakes and rivers in the area. At night, sit back, relax and count the stars.
