Kitson Island Marine Park


Marine-accessible camping

Wilderness camping are allowed, but no facilities are provided. Marine access only. Sandy beaches.

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.
The park is a popular overnight stop for kayakers travelling between the mainland and Porcher Island. Landing beaches are present. Backcountry camping is permitted. Kayak rentals are available in Prince Rupert.

There are fishing opportunities. Anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia must have an appropriate licence. Excellent tidal water fishing opportunities for salmon and groundfish. Fishing licences are available for purchase in Kitimat and Prince Rupert. Please refer to current fishing regulations.

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 but if you must take them, dogs should be under control to avoid any potential problem with wildlife.
