Winter camping

This park is accessible year-round. There is no winter camping fee.


While small fires are allowed, we encourage visitors to conserve the environment by minimizing the use of fire and using stoves instead. If you do have a fire, please utilize previously constructed fire rings and use small pieces of wood that will burn completely. If you can’t find a previously used site, try to construct your fire rings below the high tide mark. Never leave your fire unattended and practice “Leave No Trace” camping ethics.

There are opportunities for canoeing or kayaking in this park for experienced paddlers only. Paddlers should avoid Seymour Narrows and only travel through Surge Narrows at slack tide. 

Paddlers and boaters should also be familiar with tidal current charts so they can safely explore the rich waters around Surge Narrows Park. Only very experienced kayakers should attempt to paddle in the fast-flowing and treacherous tidal streams at Surge Narrows. Currents can flow through this area at 16 knots and up to 14 knots on the ebb.


This park offers opportunities for ocean fishing. Rock fish and salmon are the main species. Anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia must have an appropriate licence.
