Catto Creek Conservancy contains part of the Silverthrone volcanic complex which lies near the coast in SW British Columbia NW of the head of Knight Inlet. Silverthrone is a roughly circular, 20-km-wide, deeply dissected caldera complex containing rhyolitic, dacitic and andesitic lava domes, flows and breccia.
For parks that accept reservations, all vehicle-accessible campsites and group sites must be reserved through the BC Parks reservations system.

Wilderness, backcountry or walk-in camping is allowed, but no facilities are provided. This is a very remote area and users must be fully prepared and self sufficient if visiting this Conservancy. This should include carrying a VHF radio or Satellite Phone as any rescue from this area could be problematic.
The park is open to hunting. Guided and unguided hunting permitted in this Conservancy. Check with Hunting and Trapping Synopsis for regulations.
