Winter vehicle-accessible camping fee: $11 per party per night.
Campfires are allowed and campfire rings are provided at each campsite. We encourage visitors to conserve the environment by minimizing the use of fire and using stoves instead. You can conserve firewood and air quality by keeping your campfire small. Firewood can be purchased from the park operator. Fees for firewood are set locally and may vary. Limited burning hours or campfire bans may be implemented. Be prepared to bring a portable stove for cooking.
To preserve vegetation and ground cover, please don’t gather firewood from the area around your campsite or elsewhere in the park (this is a ticketable offence under the Park Act). Dead wood is an important habitat element for many plants and animals and it adds organic matter to the soil.
This park has five pit toilets. There are four throughout the campground and one in the day-use area.
There are 2 km of interlinked hiking and walking trails at this park. A 0.5 km trail leads from the parking lot at the day-use area to the fish ladder.
A viewpoint above the fish ladder offers great views of the river, and in season, spawning salmon. Interpretive signage at this point offers information about the fish spawning cycle. From the fish ladder, trails continue through the forest. There is also a loop trail that overlooks the river.
Riverbanks can be very slippery. Stay away from cliff and riverbank edges. 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.
Fishing is allowed in Stamp River Park, but is closed 200 m above and 500 m below Stamp Falls from June 15 to November 15. Boundary markers are located on trees along the river. Changes to the regulations occur regularly along this river, so all anglers should check the current regulations prior to fishing. Anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia must have an appropriate licence.
Pets and domestic animals must be on a leash and under control at all times. You are responsible for their behaviour and must dispose of their excrement. Backcountry areas are not suitable for dogs or other pets due to the potential for problems with bears and other wildlife.
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 Stamp River 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.
