Jesse Falls Protected Area


Wilderness camping

Wilderness camping is allowed; no facilities are provided.

Winter camping
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.
Swimming is possible in Jesse Lake and in the ocean, but the water is cold all season long. There are no lifeguards on duty at provincial parks.
Good kayaking and canoeing opportunities on Jesse Lake. For you safety, please avoid paddling near the falls.

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


The park is open to hunting. Please refer to the British Columbia Hunting Regulations for more information.

Winter recreation
The park is accessible year-round.
