Group camping

The Discovery Creek site has traditionally been used by hunters in the fall and is a rustic group campsite.

Vehicle-accessible camping

This park offers six rustic, vehicle-accessible campsites on a first come, first served basis. They are accessible from June to October, weather permitting. Campsite reservations are not accepted.

  • Germansen Lake has four camping areas located along its shore: Germansen East site located next to the Germansen flumes, which were built in the 1930s for channelling water (used in hydraulic mining) some 14 miles to the Germansen Mine. Though broken and scattered, the flumes can still be seen from several locations along the Germansen Lake road.
  • Germansen Lake site aka Pebble Beach or Palm Beach is located mid way along the lake’s north shore. This site has a pea gravel beach.
  • Rainbow Cove is situated on the east side of the narrows just south of the crossing. There is a mix of open field sites and some semi private sites further along the shore.
  • Germansen Narrows aka Gebhardt Arm site is on the west side of the narrows just south of the crossing. This is a narrow campsite close to the road.

The land settlement area has two camping areas:

  • Omineca River site located at 13 mile creek, offers rough access to the river, not suitable for trailer-type boat launching. The Omineca River offers some good fishing and grade one or two canoeing. Though the Sekani word “Omineca”, means slow moving water, there are a couple of log-jams that may present some minor problems for canoeists or kayakers.
  • Discovery Creek site is being developed more as a group site traditionally used by hunters in the fall.
Wilderness camping

Nina Lake South is in a pristine wilderness setting that offers wilderness camping opportunities. Road access is narrow, rough and usually limited to four-wheel drives. It is recommended not to drive this road but to hike in to the small rustic camping area at the lake. The lake is approximately 6 km from the Thutade Forest Service Road.

No facilities are available at this site.

Campfires are permitted. A limited supply of firewood is provided by the park’s maintenance contractor. To preserve vegetation and ground cover, please don’t gather firewood from the area around your campsite or elsewhere in the park. Dead wood is an important habitat element for many plants and animals and it adds organic matter to the soil. 

You can conserve firewood and air quality by keeping your campfire small. Limited burning hours or campfire bans may be implemented and some parks may use communal fire rings. Be prepared to bring a portable stove for cooking.
