Peace River Corridor Park protects a series of islands within the Peace River Canyon as well as some scenic grassland habitats on the Peace River shoreline.
There are three distinct areas:
Peace River Corridor Island Site: this area, along the south shore of the Peace River, west of Kiskatinaw Creek, provides visitors with good fishing, boating, wildlife viewing, camping and picnicking areas along the river and around Raspberry Island.
Wak’anaahtaah: translated means a place to look at. On the north shore of the Peace River west of Alces Creek, geological formations called hoodoos have developed.
Alces River: at this location, there is a scenic viewpoint and picnic site overlooking the Peace River. The area is sparsely treed with grasslands dominating the south facing slopes
BC Hydro controls water levels in the Peace River. These levels may increase or decrease without notice. It is suggested to check with BC Hydro before setting out on your trip. Boaters should watch out for gravel bars.
Off-Road Vehicles (ORVs) are prohibited in this park. ORVs include ATVs, off-road motorcycles, snowmobiles and side-by-sides.
Wilderness camping is allowed, but no facilities are provided.
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. Be prepared to bring a portable stove for cooking.
There are no developed trails at this park. Be prepared when adventuring in the backcountry.
The Peace River offers good kayaking and canoeing opportunities.
Arctic grayling, mountain whitefish, yellow walleye, burbot, bull trout, rainbow trout, goldeneye, kokanee and northern pike can all be found within the Peace River. Anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia must have an appropriate licence.
There are wildlife viewing opportunities.
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.
