No firewood available. Firewood is not provided at this park. If you must have a fire please burn only dead and down wood, and be sure to extinguish the fire fully. Dead wood is an important habitat element for many plants and animals and it adds organic matter to the soil so please use it conservatively, if at all. Be prepared to bring a portable stove for cooking.
Pit or flush toilets
This park only has pit toilets. They are located beside each of the cabins near Itcha Lake.

There are unmaintained hiking trails. 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.

Anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia must have an appropriate licence.

Pets on leash

Pets and 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.


Cycling is permitted on one trail in the park. Please call the Cariboo regional office for information.

Please note that bicycles with electric assist motors (e-bikes) are not allowed on the trails within Itcha Ilgachuz 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.

Horseback riding
Unmaintained horse trails exist throughout the park.

This park is open to hunting. Please check the BC Hunting and Trapping Regulations for more information. Horses are allowed in the park for hunting purposes.
