While fires are allowed, we encourage visitors to conserve the environment by minimizing the use of fire and using stoves instead. Campfires must be below the high tide mark. Please be careful with fires and refrain from having fires on windy days. Utilize previously constructed fire rings if possible and use small pieces of driftwood that will burn completely. Never leave your fire unattended and practice “ Leave No Trace” camping ethics.
Pit or flush toilets

Jedediah Island has approximately 3.5km of walking trails, which cross the island and connect the secluded bays. One main trail leads through old-growth forest to an open field and links up with trails on the other side of the field. 

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.


There is no designated swimming area in this park. However, the sandy bays, particularly on the northeast side of the park, offer nice swimming opportunities. There are no lifeguards on duty.

This park is a popular destination for kayakers, especially during the summer months. Paddlers visit Jedediah to camp as part of a kayak touring route of this area. Paddlers can set in on Lasqueti Island.

Fishing is permitted as per provincial and federal fishing regulations. All anglers should check the current regulations issued by Fisheries and Oceans Canada prior to fishing. Anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia must have an appropriate licence.

Rockfish Conservation Areas occur within this park. Fishing activities are limited in Rockfish Conservation Areas. Before you go fishing please refer to the Rockfish Conservation Area descriptions available from Fisheries and Oceans Canada DFO.

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.
