Germansen Landing is an unincorporated settlement on the Omineca River, at the confluence of that river and its tributary the Germansen, in the Northern Interior of British Columbia, Canada.[1] The settlement was a focus of the Omineca Gold Rush of the 1860s. A Hudson Bay Supply post there supplied the miners and trappers. Placer mining continued into the 1930s, when the Depression created a market for gold. The area is very remote and required multiple lake and trail journeys to get to from Fort Saint James. Today, access is four hours by dirt logging road from Mackenzie along the west shore of Williston Lake.
