Campfires are permitted, but firewood is not available. Firewood may be purchases from vendors on Shuswap Lake or you can bring your own wood. While campfires are allowed and campfire rings are provided at each campsite, we encourage visitors to conserve wood and protect the environment by minimizing the use of fire and using campstoves instead. Fees for firewood are set locally and may vary from park to park. Limited burning hours or campfire bans may be implemented. To preserve vegetation and ground cover, please don’t gather firewood from the area around your campsite or elsewhere in the park (this is a ticketable offence under the Park Act ). Dead wood is an important habitat element for many plants and animals and it adds organic matter to the soil.

For your own safety and the preservation of the park, obey posted signs and keep to designated trails. Shortcutting trails destroys plant life and soil structure. Hunakwa Lake Trail is 3 km – Be prepared for rough and wet conditions.
There are no lifeguards on duty at provincial parks.
There are opportunities for canoeing or kayaking in this park. Your water craft must be portaged to Hunakwa Lake Trail (approximately 3 km). Be prepared for rough and wet conditions. There is no vehicle access.
