Bulkley River Recreation Site

BRRS Photo Album (opens in new window)

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.
