Ram Creek Ecological Reserve
Motorized users are advised that the section of the Ram Creek Forest Service Road which previously traversed through Ram Creek Ecological Reserve has been permanently deactivated and reclaimed for public safety, due to significant debris torrent hazard to the geothermal site. All resource roads adjacent to Ram Creek Ecological Reserve remain open.
BC Parks does not recommend recreational use of the warm pools within Ram Creek Ecological Reserve.
Ecological Reserves are areas in British Columbia selected to preserve representative and special natural ecosystems, plant and animal species, features, and phenomena. Ecological Reserves provide the highest level of protection for the maintenance of physical and biological diversity while allowing for research and educational activities.

Ram Creek Ecological Reserve was established to protect the hotsprings and very restricted plant communities and rare plants against recreational and other damage.
Detailed Ecological Reserve Description
BC Parks has created a detailed description of each Ecological Reserve to support current or potential education and research. Each account includes physical, biological, and cultural information as well as management concerns regarding the Ecological Reserve, with references to supporting documents where available. Additional documents may also be made available, upon request.
Ecological reserves are not created for outdoor recreation. Most ecological reserves, however, are open to the public for non-destructive pursuits like hiking, nature observation and photography. Consumptive activities like hunting, freshwater fishing, camping, livestock grazing, removal of materials, plants or animals are prohibited by regulation in ecological reserves. Motorized vehicles are not allowed. Research and educational activities may be carried out but only under permit.
