Welcome message from site

Three new physicians were recently recruited. This is a small town. You will be treated like a rockstar!!!

Nestled between two rivers in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains, Princeton is a prominent adventure playground only two hours by car from the interior hub of Kelowna and 4 hours by car from downtown Vancouver.

With abundant lakes and the Similkameen and Tulameen Rivers converging in the centre of town, water lovers can partake in canoeing, water skiing, kayaking and the fishing is year round! Hiking, 4x4ing, camping and golfing at the renowned Princeton Golf Club (where you may catch a glimpse of the resident badgers) are just a few of the many activities Princeton has to offer.

If it’s winter sports you’re interested in, Princeton has some of the best snowmobiling terrain around, as well as Manning Park Ski Resort is only 40 minutes drive away, downhill skiing at Apex Ski Resort near the town of Penticton just over an hour’s drive by car. Snow Patch Mountain is only minutes from downtown and offers numberous cross country ski trails. Princeton is a recreational lover’s dream!
