Cariboo River Park


Wilderness camping

Wilderness camping is allowed, but no facilities are provided. There is an information shelter at the Cariboo River crossing on the 3100 Road.

Boat launch
The boat launch is gravel and may be flooded at high water. It is next to the bridge by the information shelter. The road access is narrow and confined.
While campfires are permitted, it is preferable to use a camp stove, since this is a fragile environment. If you must have a fire, bring your own firewood or use only dead and down wood. Please use existing campfire rings, do not build new ones.
Only paddlers experienced with moving water should attempt this section of the Cariboo River (which is mellow compared with some sections outside the park). Wear approved PFDs and watch for deadheads and sweepers.

Fish for rainbow trout and bull trout. Anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia must have an appropriate licence.


The park is open to hunting. Please check the Hunting & Trapping Regulations Synopsis for more information.

Winter recreation
Visitors can cross-country ski or snowshoe in the park but there are no set trails.
