Jesse Falls Park protects a small area around a 10 metre high waterfall that drains directly out of Jesse Lake and directly into the ocean. The falls are a scenic focal point along the Douglas Channel.
Wilderness camping is allowed, but no facilities are provided.
There is winter camping in the park. The park is accessible year-round.
Campfires are permitted. Firewood is not provided. 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. We encourage visitors to conserve wood and protect the environment by minimizing the use of campfires and using camp stoves instead. Limited burning hours or campfire bans may be implemented.
Jesse Falls Protected Area is located roughly 25 km southeast of Kitimat on the west side of Kitimat Arm. It can be found on chart 3743 (Douglas Channel) and on NTS Map Sheet # 103 H/15 (Kitimat Arm). Access is by boat only.
BC Parks honours Indigenous Peoples’ connection to the land and respects the importance of their diverse teachings, traditions, and practices within these territories.

We are working in partnership with Indigenous Peoples to update our websites so that they better reflect the history and cultures of these special places.
