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.
