Babine River Corridor Provincial Park

 

Babine River Corridor Provincial Park is located in a remote area 130 km north of Smithers and encompasses an 85 km stretch of Babine River as it flows from the north end of Babine Lake to Skeena River. This park is a fabulous destination for anglers. Babine River is famed for its strong steelhead run, which occurs in October, as well as the fall Chinook and Coho salmon runs. In June and July, big rainbow trout congregate near the mouth of Babine River to feed on salmon fry, resulting in extraordinary fishing opportunities. Another activity popular on Babine River is whitewater rafting / kayking. This fast flowing river has some challenging rapids, and the route is recommended only to experienced paddlers. The abundance of fish attracts large numbers of black and grizzly bears, and visitors should take precautions to avoid a bear encounter. The small, rustic campground offers 10 vehicle-accessible campsites and is located 4 km from the east park entrance.
