Our next stop was the Coffee Creek RV Park, a new park near Fort St John and very well laid out. We ran into a couple from Sointula that we had camped beside near Smithers. They had reached the Arctic Circle and were off to Prince George to do some hunting.
Getting close to Dawson Creek the next day, we took a detour to cross Kiskatinaw Bridge - the longest wooden curved bridge in North America. The main road uses a newer bridge that will take the weight of heavy duty trucks. Arriving in town, we checked into the Mile 0 RV Park which is next to the Pioneer Village. This collection of historic buildings was worth the stop, even though not all buildings were open. One of the buildings was a replica - built with reclaimed lumber and materials. Very authentic looking! There was also a 50 ft long burled spruce log which is rare because of its incredible length.
Downtown is the historic Mile Zero Signpost, which marks the beginning of the Alaska Highway. We had planned to visit the art gallery located in a former grain elevator but, unfortunately, it is undergoing renovations and is closed. Tried to find the new location but no luck.
