Open May 15 to October 15, 2018.
Notice May 15, 2018: Please stay away from the Bulkley River bank and exercise extreme caution along other bodies of water. Undercutting of banks during flooding makes the area within 15 feet of the water extremely dangerous. Fast moving water and the wider area surrounding the fast moving water are extremely dangerous and people are strongly advised to stay far away from moving water.
Please note, the lower Perimeter Trail section by Riverside Campground is closed due to flooding in the area. Please adhere to all signage.
