Experience Merritt BC Canada Summer Things To Do 

Plan a visit and Experience Merritt BC adventures while exploring any one of our hundreds of lakes. However, not all lakes are created equal. Some are easy access, some require an off road vehicle, while some are reached best on foot. We use our lakes for fishing, canoeing, kayaking, mountain biking, hiking, birdwatching, off roading, camping, horseback riding, wind surfing, boating, water skiing and swimming during the summer months. Some of the lakes, the more popular ones, include drive-in wilderness campsites and horse riding baddocks.

Come and Experience Merritt in the winter and enjoy cross country skiing, snowmobiling, ice fishing and snowshoeing. Trails in the Helmer Lake area north of Merritt are designated for snowmobiling while cross country skiers like the Kane Valley XC ski trails south of town. The neighbouring Coquihalla Highway which intersects with Merritt is a top snowmobile destination in the province making Merritt BC an ideal base camp for backcountry snowmobiling adventures.
