Entiako Provincial Park

About This Park

Entiako Provincial Park

Entiako Park is comprised mostly of gently rolling topography, with little physical relief other than the Fawnie Mountains in the northeast. Forests are predominantly older pine, and the dry, cold growing conditions are inhospitable to most plants. Lichens, however, are abundant in the park, growing where other plants cannot survive. The lichens provide the primary winter forage for woodland caribou, who spend their winters in Entiako Park and summers in Tweedsmuir Park.

An isolated wilderness area, Entiako Park is home to a wide range of wildlife including moose, grizzly bears and wolves. Visitors to the area are few, but those who come enjoy the opportunity to boat, fish, hunt or hike in a truly remote wilderness.

Know Before You Go

Stay Safe

  • Bring your own drinking water, as potable water is not available in the park.

Special Notes

  • Commercial harvesting/picking of mushrooms is not permitted
    The commercial harvesting/picking of mushrooms (morel) for sale or resale is not permitted in a provincial park as outlined by the Park Act – section 9.1. View the Statutes and Regulations for British Columbia for more information.

Location

Entiako Park is located approximately 150 km southeast of Houston and 150 km southwest of Vanderhoof, directly east of Tweedsmuir Provincial Park. Access to Entiako Park by boat is possible through the Nechako Reservoir to the north, where several boat launches are available outside of the park. Boaters accessing Tetachuk Lake from Tweedsmuir Park to the east will need a jet-boat to pass through Redfern Rapids. A number of logging and mining roads from Vanderhoof provide access to the southern park boundary. Most of the larger lakes in Entiako Park can be accessed by floatplane.

The closest community is Burns Lake.
