Skookumchuck Narrows Park


Accessibility information

Accessibility information is available for this park.

Pit or flush toilets
This park only has pit toilets – no flush toilets.

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.

This park has a fairly flat and easy 4 km (approximately 1 hour) hiking/walking trail leading from the parking lot at Egmont to the prime viewing area for the tidal phenomenon at Roland Point.


Rockfish conservation areas occur within this park. Fishing activities are limited in Rockfish conservation areas. Before you go fishing please refer to the Rockfish conservation area descriptions available from Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO). Anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia must have an appropriate licence.

Wildlife viewing

There are opportunities to view tidal rapids, waterfowl, and abundant marine life at various tidal levels. Brown Lake provides further waterfowl viewing opportunities.

Pets on leash
Due to the dangerous conditions of the rapids, dogs should not be allowed to enter the water. 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
There are scuba diving or snorkelling opportunities in this park.
