Exchamsiks River Provincial Park and Protected Area
About This Park
The coastal Sitka spruce rainforest towers over this park at the confluence of the Exchamsiks and Skeena Rivers west of Terrace. A short nature trail allows hikers to stroll through this magnificent forest at their own pace. Salmon fishing nearby can be extremely productive and you can walk the self-guided nature trail.
Exchamsiks River Provincial Park offers visitors two day-use areas. On the west side of the river, there is a single paved boat launch available for public use year-round. On the east side of the river, there is a day-use area that allows visitors to walk a short interpretive trail through the old growth forest.
These day-use areas are open May 15 to October 1. Please note that camping is prohibited on the east side of the park.
