Coal River (Canada)

Coal River in August 2010; picture taken from Highway 97, near Cranberry Rapids

The Coal River runs from southern Yukon, Canada into northern British Columbia, Canada where it flows into the Liard River at historic milepost 533 of the Alaska Highway (Highway 97). This river hosts series of class 5 and 6 rapids but start of the river is not accessible by road, only the bottom end is. Where the Coal River runs into the Liard river is Coal River Lodge which contains an RV park, motel, cafe, gas station, 1200 foot airstrip, and giftshop. The 'community' of Coal River has a winter population of 2, and in the summer swells to 5 or 6 when the lodge is open.
