Exchamsiks River Prov. Park

Exchamsiks River Prov. Park

The coastal Sitka spruce rainforest towers over this park at the confluence of the Exchamsiks and Skeena Rivers west of Terrace. A short nature trail allows hikers to stroll through this magnificent forest at their own pace.  Salmon fishing nearby can be extremely productive and you can walk the self-guided nature trail.  Exchamsiks River Provincial Park offers visitors two day use areas. On the west side of the river, there is a single paved boat launch available for public use year round. On the east side of the river, there is a day use area that allows visitors to walk a short interpretive trail through the old growth forest.  This day use area will be open May 15 to September 30. Please note that camping is prohibited in both day-use areas.

56 km west of Terrace on Highway 16, near the confluence of the Exchamsiks and Skeena rivers, this was once the site of a provincial campsite. Closed in 2002, the park is still a day-use area and was once part of the original road.

It now protects a rare stand of old-growth Sitka spruce-salmonberry, the only one in northern BC accessible by road.

The coastal Sitka spruce rainforest towers over the park and there is a short nature trail allowing visitors to stroll through this magnificent forest at their own pace. Across Exhamsiks River, accessible just past the road into the park, is a parking lot for the boat launch and access to the rivers for fishing and boating.
