With a population of just 11,150 people, Williams Lake is the largest urban center lying between Prince George and Kamloops. Just like Prince George, Williams Lake too plays an integral role in British Columbia’s economic and cultural development. It is an excellent blend of simplicity and glamour and is the gateway to several adventures such as the annual William’s Lake Stampede, a festival which features barrel racing, bull riding, tie down roping, team roping, steer wrestling, chuck wagon races, bull riding and bareback riding.
