Oliver Cove Marine Park


Firewood is not provided. If you must have a fire, please burn only dead and down wood, and be sure to extinguish the fire fully. Dead wood is an important habitat element for many plants and animals and it adds organic matter to the soil so please use it conservatively, if at all. You can conserve firewood and air quality by keeping your campfire small. Be prepared to bring a portable stove for cooking.
Swimming is possible from your boat, but the water is cold all season long. There are no lifeguards on duty at provincial parks.
Adventurous and experienced kayakers may enjoy exploring this region.

The area surrounding the park is very popular for fishing, though the park itself is not a fishing destination. The park and entire North Coast area are closed to harvest of bivalves. Anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia must have an appropriate licence.

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.
Scuba diving
It is possible to scuba dive or snorkel in the park.

Hunting is permitted only during lawful game hunting season. Check with Hunting and Trapping Synopsis for regulations.
