Dory Point Day Use Area

For roadtrippers, this is an ideal spot to stretch your legs, lay out a picnic and enjoy your first glimpse of the big Mackenzie River as it begins its 1,750-kilometre odyssey to the Arctic Ocean. Situated just a few kilometres shy of the Dehcho Bridge and the community of Fort Providence, Dory Point overlooks the western reaches of Great Slave Lake as it tapers to form the Mackenzie headwaters. You’ll find picnic tables, a screened kitchen shelter, firewood and outhouses. Maintained May 15-September 15.
