Northern Sunrise County

Just east of Peace River. 

Northern Sunrise County is a history buff’s dream. Its Indigenous population has inhabited the area for millennia, the early Europeans set up a fur trading post at what is now the Town of Peace River, and a wave of pioneering settlers soon followed.

Rendezvous Rv Park – “The hosts Marcel and Louise are very nice down to earth people that are very friendly and helpful. Lara and Alain were always helpful and always greeted me by first name from the moment I started staying there. The laundry room and shower house were immaculately clean and always in great shape. The sites were a fair size as well. I will definitely be staying at Rendezvous Rv Park the next time I am in Peace River and so should you.”

– 510shanenewman, Trip Advisor

See historical farmhouses and granaries as you drive by (but no trespassing without permission), visit important historical sites like the 12 Foot Davis Gravesite, attend the Peace River Powwow, or hike the Pat’s Creek Trail. With parks for the kids (check out the bouncy pillow at Cecil Thompson Park) and sports like snowmobiling and rodeo for the adults, we have fun for the whole family. Be sure to pick up a sweet souvenir while you’re here — we’re famous for our honey!
