Simonette River Recreation Area is located right on the riverbed of the Simonette River. With two small campgrounds, one on each side of the road, it makes a nice escape to enjoy the beautiful scenery and as well as the river.

Surveys of this area as early as 1879 referred to this river as Simonette or Moose River. Others believed the River got its name in the 1930's when Simon Walker was living on the river. In 1980 the Peace Country Pioneer (a Summer Riding Camp) was established at Simonette River.
