Wilderness camping

There are no designated camping areas in this park. There is a Ministry of Forest camp and picnic site at the south end of this park. When practical use impacted campsites, otherwise practice Leave No Trace camping ethics. If you have a fire, build it on rocks, or remove sod, have fire, then replace sod. Register a trip itinerary with friends, check in and check out.

Gilnockie Creek Park can be accessed from the north or south end of the park on game trails; these are routes only. For your own safety and the preservation of the park, obey posted signs and keep to designated trails. Shortcutting trails destroys plant life and soil structure.

Gilnockie Creek provides cutthroat trout fishing opportunties. Anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia must have an appropriate licence.

Pets on leash

Backcountry areas are not suitable for dogs or other pets due to wildlife issues and the potential for problems with bears. Care should be taken to avoid disturbance of wildlife. Dogs in backcountry parks must be under control at all times. You are responsible for their behaviour and must dispose of their excrement.


Bicycles must keep to roadways. Bicycle helmets are mandatory in British Columbia.

Please note that bicycles with electric assist motors (e-bikes) are not allowed on the trails within Gilnockie Park. E-bikes are restricted to park roads and areas where motorized use is permitted. The only exception to this policy will be for authorized and identified trail maintenance bikes conducting work on behalf of BC Parks.


Gilnockie Park is open to the discharge of firearms, bows and crossbows only during a lawful game hunting season (MU 4-4). Please check the BC Hunting and Trapping Regulations for more information.
