Northern Rocky Mountains Park


Wilderness camping

Wilderness camping is allowed, but no facilities are provided. Please practice Responsible Recreation.


Keep backcountry campfires small.


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.

Information on hiking excursions offered by private companies (non-government website):


The park offers opportunities for wilderness paddling experiences. These trips are only recommended for experienced paddlers; pre-trip research and planning is required. Potential trips include:

  • Tuchodi River: Multi-day trip starting from Tuchodi Lakes (air access only) down the Tuchodi River to the Muskwa River and on to Kledo Creek boat launch which is accessible from the Alaska Highway.
  • Muskwa River: Multi-day trip starting just below the upper canyon on the Muskwa River (air access only via helicopter) to the Kledo Creek boat launch, which is accessible from the Alaska Highway.

Lake trout, rainbow trout, bull trout, arctic grayling and lake whitefish are just some of the sport fish in the Northern Rocky Mountains Park. Anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia must have an appropriate licence.

Wildlife viewing

There are wildlife viewing opportunities. Black bear, grizzly bear, elk, caribou, goat, Stones sheep, wolf and deer frequent the area.

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. Dogs should be under control to avoid any potential problem with wildlife. Backcountry areas are not suitable for dogs or other pets due to wildlife issues and the potential for problems with bears.

Horseback riding

Northern Rocky Mountains Park offers excellent opportunities for backcountry horseback riding. Riders should be experienced and prepared for wilderness travel, as there are no designated trails.

The park is open to hunting. All hunters to the area should refer to the current BC Hunting & Trapping Regulations Synopsis.

Winter recreation

Snowmobiling: Winter recreation opportunities include snowmobiling. Winter users should be well educated about avalanche terrain and managing risk while travelling in such terrain. BC Parks, in consultation with various user groups, has designated certain areas for snowmobiling. Snowmobiling is permitted in the Nature Recreation Zone, only. View the Northern Rocky Mountains Zoning Map [PDF], the Google Earth KMZ, and Global Positioning System GPX files under the Protected area and activity maps. These files show where snowmobiling is allowed in the park. Please respect these boundaries.
