Kilby Provincial Park

 

This small provincial park is situated on the banks of the mighty Fraser River, amidst a rural pastoral area of north-eastern Fraser Valley. Boating and fishing can be enjoyed in Fraser River, as well as in Harrison River, which borders the park. Kilby Provincial Park offers excellent bird watching opportunities: eagles, trumpeter swans, ravens and geese can frequently be observed. This park has 22 vehicle accessible campsites, some set amidst the trees and others in an open area riverfront. A must-see attraction at this park is the Kilby General Store Museum and Farm, which offers a glimpse of life in the early 1900. Here you will find a fascinating array of products dating back to 1920, see the preserved décor of the early 20th century hotel rooms, and kids will have an opportunity to interact with baby farm animals.
