Bull Canyon is a small campground along Highway 20, ideal for visitors travelling in the Chilcotin. The park is located in a beautiful canyon, with the glacier blue Chilcotin River flowing past the campground. There is a short walking trail beside the river, and the surrounding area supports excellent fishing lakes, birdwatching and wildlife viewing opportunities.
People can view shallow caves in Bull Canyon Mountain on the Chilcotin River Interpretive Trail. Bull Canyon Park is often used as a base to explore the Chilco.
Established Date: April 7, 1993
Park Size: 343 hectares
There are four walk-in tent sites a short walk from the parking lot.
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. Firewood can be purchased in the park or you may bring your own wood. 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.
Bicycles must keep to roadways. Bicycle helmets are mandatory in British Columbia.
Please note that bicycles with electric assist motors (e-bikes) are not allowed on the trails within Bull Canyon Provincial Park. E-bikes are restricted to park roads and areas where motorized use is permitted. The only exception to this policy will be for authorized and identified trail maintenance bikes conducting work on behalf of BC Parks.
Six kilometres west of the community of Alexis Creek, off Highway 20. The nearest communities, towns and cities are Alexis Creek, Redstone, Hanceville and Williams Lake.
