The Northern Woods & Water Highway officially starts from Winnipeg in the east, goes north to The Pas, and then westward through northern Saskatchewan and Alberta into NE BC, before going south through the interior of BC to the lower mainland. The highway was conceived in the mid-1970s by a retired CN employee from McLennan, AB. He took a group of campers from Dawson Creek, BC, to Winnipeg, MB each year, eventually forming an Association that lobbied the three prairie provinces to recognize the highway.

The average kilometers traveled per day is 200 and the total days for the tour are 21. From Winnipeg to Dawson Creek is 2,400 km, and from Peace Country to Cache Creek is 1,100 km.
Note that the majority of the communities along the highway are quite small, and many do not have the capability to host a large number of RVs in a serviced campground. Along the way, there are six small cities, 32 towns, and 48 villages. Many overnight stays will be in a group camping setup with minimal services.
