The Alexander Mackenzie Heritage Trail travels (through Kluskoil Lake Park) from Quesnel to the Bella Coola Valley along the Blackwater River and over the Rainbow Range in Tweedsmuir Park. “In the Steps of Alexander Mackenzie” is a trail guide published in 1987, available through bookstores, museums.

For your own safety and the preservation of the park, obey posted signs and keep to designated trails. Shortcutting trails destroys plant life and soil structure.


There are no lifeguards on duty at provincial parks.


The Blackwater River is not recommended for canoeing. However, canoeing on Kluskoil Lake will provide access to wetlands and wildlife viewing opportunities.


The Blackwater River and Kluskoil Lake support significant populations of rainbow and bull trout. The river system is designated a Class II Classified Water. Anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia must have an appropriate licence.

Pets on leash

Pets and 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.


Bicycles must keep to roadways. Bicycle helmets are mandatory in British Columbia. For details on e-biking within Kluskoil Lake Park, see the e-biking section.


Please note that bicycles with electric assist motors (e-bikes) are permitted on signed or designated trails within Kluskoil Lake Park, provided they meet the definitions and criteria for e-bike use as outlined in the BC Parks cycling guidelines.
