Kitsumkalum Provincial Park is a small park with a user-maintained campground. It is an old Forest Service recreation site and is easily accessed by road. There is room for up to seven small camping parties. A pit toilet is the only facility provided in this park.
The lake is easily accessed from the campground and offers some excellent paddling opportunities. The sandy shoreline hugs the lake to the west of the campground and is a great beach for swimming.
Park Size: 40 hectares
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.
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 http://gofishbc.com for more information.
The park is located about 25 km north of the city of Terrace. To access the park, drive north on the Nisga’a highway #113 towards the town of Rosswood, then turn left on the gravel road just past Goat Creek. There is only a BC Parks Boundary sign marking the entrance. A short drive down this road will bring you to the lake and campground.
