Picnic areas

Boat launch

There is a moderate-grade boat launch at this park. A breakwater wharf and dock are also available.


Firewood can be purchased from the park operator in some parks or you can bring your own wood. Fees for firewood are set locally and may vary. 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.


The Bluff Trail is available to park visitors. It is a self-guided interpretive trail and makes an easy 3km loop. The trail may be flooded at different times of year due to water fluctuations on Babine Lake. 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.


There are paddling, canoeing and kayaking opportunities at this park.


Babine Lake is an angler’s paradise. Cutthroat, rainbow trout and char are found in the lake. Flyfishing and trolling yield superb results. Anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia must have an appropriate licence.

Wildlife viewing

There are wildlife viewing opportunities at the viewing platforms along the Bluff Trail. A variety of waterfowl and song birds frequent the marsh areas and can be seen at any time of the day.

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.


Bicycles must keep to roadways. Bicycle helmets are mandatory in British Columbia.

Please note that bicycles with electric assist motors (e-bikes) are not allowed on the trails within Red Bluff Provincial Park. E-bikes are restricted to park roads and areas where motorized use is permitted. The only exception to this policy will be for authorized and identified trail maintenance bikes conducting work on behalf of BC Parks.
