Sustut Protected Area primarily plays a conservation role, providing habitat to mountain goats, grizzly and black bears, and caribou. It covers a large tract of virtually undisturbed land, providing representation of the moist cold Engelmann Spruce Subalpine Fir biogeoclimatic subzone.
Wilderness camping is allowed, but no facilities are provided.
Pets/domestic animals must be on a leash 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 wildlife issues and the potential for problems with bears.
This protected area is open to hunting during the lawful game season. See the British Columbia Hunting and Trapping regulations synopsis for further details.
Access to the protected area is by air.
