Kiskatinaw Provincial Park is located 28km north of Dawson Creek off Highway 97, on the Old Alaska Highway.

The Kiskatinaw River flows along the east side of Dawson Creek, then bends north around the town. Kiskatinaw Provincial Park, which has access to the river, is right beside the historic Kiskatinaw River Bridge, a three-span wooden trestle built between 1942-43, from which visitors cast cautious glances at the river 30 m below.

 

A number of bird species live in the park and elk, moose, and white-tailed deer frequent the area, as well as bears. The park contains 28 vehicle/tent campsites and provides basic facilities picnic tables, pit toilets, fire pits, water, and firewood for sale. There is also a group camping site and free picnic/day-use area. The park is open from May to October (weather permitting) and fees are collected during this time.
