There is one backcountry public use cabin located on Alastair Lake. There is also a private cabin and a permit-approved private trappers cabin not authorized for public use.

Marine-accessible camping

Wilderness camping is allowed; no facilities are provided. There is no road access to this protected area.


No firewood or fire rings are available. If you have to make a fire, keep it minimal, make sure it is extinguished, please spread ashes and rocks about.


There are canoeing and kayaking opportunities in this protected area. Visitors must be experienced paddlers capable of traveling in strong river currents. Technical navigation is required. Flash flooding often occurs after rain events.


Angling enthusiasts should take note of the excellent sport fishing opportunities available in the park. At least 13 species of fish including Pacific salmon, rainbow and cutthroat trout, dolly varden char, and mountain whitefish occur in the area. Anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia must have an appropriate licence.

Pets on leash

Pets/domestic animals must be on a leash at all times and are not allowed in beach areas or park buildings. You are responsible for their behaviour and must dispose of their excrement. Backcountry areas are not suitable for dogs or other pets due to wildlife issues and the potential for problems with bears.


Hunting is allowed in the protected area. Please check the BC Hunting & Trapping Regulations Synopsis for more information.
