There are a number of campgrounds and RV parks in and around Terrace.
Terrace is located in the Northern British Columbia region of the province, in the Skeena River Valley and is terraced from glacial deposits. It is also fairly low-lying and sheltered by the Coast Mountains. This arrangement provides a natural rainforest climate which allows fruit orchards and specialty crops to thrive.
About seven First Nations tribes inhabited the area for thousands of years. The first visitors from outside were brought to the area via riverboat in 1871 and this kind of traffic continued for about 22 years. Gold fever brought the next wave of people and then the building of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway attracted homesteaders with its promise of free land. The first road which connected Prince Rupert and Terrace was built in 1943, in conjunction with the war.
The logging industry was the economic mainstay in Terrace until the mid 2000s and the world's tallest cedar pole was cut in Terrace and is still standing in New York City.
