Houston, British Columbia

There are a couple of RV parks and campgrounds near to Houston.

Formerly known as Pleasant Valley, the town was re-named after John Houston, a champion of the working man, in a contest, even though he never lived there. The name Steelhead Capital is also used due to the presence of the somewhat endangered oceangoing form of rainbow trout and the prevalence of fly-fishing. Fishing is good in the extensive river and lakes system, including the Bulkley and Morice Rivers, which run together near the townsite.

For a town of about 4,000 Houston has a large number of roadside visitor attractions. The world's largest fly fishing rod is here, as are a chainsaw wood sculpture honouring bull rider.
