YELLOWKNIFE (May 28, 2015) – The Slave River Rapids, wildlife viewing opportunities and a diverse landscape have earned Queen Elizabeth Territorial Park near Fort Smith recognition by Explore Magazine as one of the Top 25 Campsites in Canada.
“As this year’s camping season begins, it is great to see the NWT’s parks system garnering national coverage and attention,” says Minister of Industry, Tourism and Investment David Ramsay. “This recognition will serve to attract even more visitors to our spectacular facilities as well as our communities and is a tribute to the great team that keeps the park running, the community’s support for it and its beautiful location.”

In its article featuring Queen Elizabeth Territorial Park, the magazine highlighted paddling the world-class whitewater of Slave River, hiking along the riverside trail and venturing into Wood Buffalo National Park among the many opportunities and activities available to visitors.
