About This Park

Peace River Corridor Provincial Park Peace River Corridor Provincial Park protects a series of islands within the Peace River Canyon as well as some scenic grassland habitats on the Peace River shoreline. Three distinct areas have been identified:

  2. Wak’anaahtaah: translated means a place to look at. On the north shore of the Peace River west of Alces Creek, geological formations called hoodoos have developed.
  3. Alces River: at this location, there is a scenic viewpoint and picnic site overlooking the Peace River. The area is sparsely treed with grasslands dominating the south facing slopes

Campfires

Campfires

To preserve vegetation and ground cover, please don’t gather firewood from the area around your campsite or elsewhere in the park. Dead wood is an important habitat element for many plants and animals and it adds organic matter to the soil. You can conserve firewood and air quality by keeping your campfire small. Be prepared to bring a portable stove for cooking.
