Scatter River Old Growth Park


Wilderness camping

Wilderness camping is allowed, but no facilities are provided.

Campfires are permitted. Campfire pits and firewood are not 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. 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.

Sport fish species include arctic grayling, chum salmon, bull trout, inconnu, lake whitefish, mountain whitefish, northern pike and burbot. 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. Dogs should be under control to avoid any potential problems with wildlife.
Horseback riding
Scatter River Old Growth Provincial Park offers 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
Winter Recreational opportunities are available.
