Kitsumkalum Park


Vehicle-accessible camping

The campground runs on a first come, first serve basis and does not accept reservations. There is room for up to 7 smaller groups on the unmarked sites. This campground is more suited for tents and small campers. Larger recreational vehicles or vehicles towing large trailers may find it difficult to manoeuvre, especially if the park is crowded. There is a general store 10 minutes north of the park in the town of Rosswood. A pit toilet is the only facility provided. This campground is user maintained so please respect it and pack out any garbage that you may produce. Please bring your own firewood.

Picnic areas
There are no picnic tables or shelters in the park, however it is only a short drive off the highway and is quite a nice spot for a picnic.
Pit or flush toilets
This park only has pit toilets – no flush toilets.
There is no firewood available in the park so it is recommended that you bring your own. The cutting of trees in the park is prohibited.
The lake offers some excellent swimming from its sandy shoreline. There is no designated swimming area.
Kitsumkalum Lake offers some excellent canoeing and kayaking opportunities. The lake is easily accessed from the campground. A paddle along the lakes shoreline can produce scenic views and wildlife viewing opportunities. Boats can be easily put in the lake from the beach.

Kitsumkalum Lake offers some good seasonal fishing for Coho salmon, Dolly Varden char and Cutthroat trout. Anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia must have an appropriate licence. Please consult the BC Freshwater Fishing Regulations Synopsis and Freshwater Salmon Supplement for seasons and limits, or go to for more information.
