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.”
