Located on both shores of the Bulkley River downstream of Houston and upstream of Telkwa and Smithers, this newly developed 104 hectare Recreation Site welcomes users to a habitat that is unique, with its low elevation spruce and cottonwood forests and its ready access to the Bulkley River.
A small chalet is a welcome retreat for recreationists. In addition, 10 km of cross-country trails are enjoyed by hikers, cyclists, skiers, snow-shoers and horse-back riders. Those passionate about fishing can also be seen, casting from the banks.
A rustic camping area, with 5 sites (ranging in size from one tent to small groups) provides outhouses, fire rings, food caches and picnic tables. In addition, there are 2 canoe pull-outs.
The trails, themselves, tell the story of these lands and water: Blowdown, Poplar, Old Mill and Plantation describe the forests; Peat Bog, Esker and Elk define other natural features and Widzin’kwa, Wet’suwet’en for glacial blue-green waters, highlights the traditional First Nations’ history on this site.
