Takla Lake Marine Park


Marine-accessible camping

Wilderness camping is allowed, but no facilities are provided. Practice “ Leave No Trace” camping; choose a camp spot that will do the least damage to vegetation; do not damage live vegetation; if you pack it in, pack it out; dispose of personal waste or waste water at least 100 metres from the lake or any creek.

There are opportunities for canoeing or kayaking in this park. Boaters are cautioned to keep a close eye on the weather as Takla Lake is subject to sudden heavy winds that can transform the lake into dangerous whitecaps. Those with small boats are advised to stay close to shore.

Popular sport fish include dolly varden, rainbow trout, lake trout (char), kokanee, and freshwater ling cod (burbot). Anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia must have an appropriate licence. Refer to the current BC Freshwater Fishing Regulations Synopsis for specific catch quotas and regulations; the Stuart-Trembleur-Takla chain of waterways is in Region 7 (Omineca-Peace) – Zone A.


Cycling is permitted and 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 Takla Lake Marine Provincial 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.
