|City of Williams Lake||Welcome Guest|
Scout Island, located on the west end of Williams Lake off South Mackenzie Avenue, is a nature sanctuary and park area comprising two islands connected to the mainland by a vehicle causeway. In addition to a beach area, picnic ground and boat launch, Scout Island contains a series of nature trails that take visitors through a relatively undisturbed natural environment, rich in bird (over 200 different species) and small wildlife habitat.
A key feature of Scout Island is the Nature House which strategically overlooks the extensive marsh adjacent to the island. The Nature Centre is operated by the Williams Lake Field Naturalists and offers displays, programs and information interpreting the diverse and sensitive environment of Scout Island.
Along with the birding and hiking, Scout Island is also a great place for a family swim and a picnic.
