Chukachida Protected Area provides important wildlife habitat to moose, grizzly bears, caribou and several fish species. It is a key wildlife corridor, providing connectivity to high value habitat in adjacent areas. Recreation opportunities include moose hunting and fishing in the wide u-shaped valleys in this protected area.
Park Size: 19,637 hectares
Wilderness camping is allowed, but no facilities are provided.
Fires should be used sparingly, as they are among the most serious visual impacts in the backcountry. Always carry a stove; use it for most if not all of your cooking needs and only build a fire when it is safe and will not cause further damage or deplete wood supplies. 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.
Please check for campfire bans and the Fire Danger Rating for the area you are visiting before igniting a fire in the backcountry. 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 more information on campfires in the backcountry, click here.
Hunting is permitted within Chukachida Protected Area. Please refer to current BC Hunting Regulations for seasons and bag limits.

BC Parks honours Indigenous Peoples’ connection to the land and respects the importance of their diverse teachings, traditions, and practices within these territories.
