Yahk Provincial Park

  • Yahk Provincial Park is now closed to camping for the winter.

About This Park

Located along Highway 3/95, 70km south of Cranbrook and 14.5km north of the US and Canadian borders at Kingsgate, Yahk Park is a traveller’s rest place. Near the Moyie River in a quiet well spaced forest this 26 site campground and day-use area is a great introduction to BC Park visitor facilities.

Yahk Park was established in 1956 to provide camping and picnicking opportunities for the travelling public. As well it conserves a short scenic section of the Moyie River. The adjacent town of Yahk has services and tourist supplies. The area was once a major supplier of railroad ties for the Canadian Pacific Railway.

Facilities Available at this Park

Campfires

Campfires

While campfires are allowed and campfire rings are provided at each campsite, we encourage visitors to conserve wood and protect the environment by minimizing the use of fire and using campstoves instead. Firewood can be purchased in the park or you may bring your own wood. Fees for firewood are set locally and may vary from park to park. Limited burning hours or campfire bans may be implemented. To preserve vegetation and ground cover, please don’t gather firewood from the area around your campsite or elsewhere in the park (this is a ticketable offence under the Park Act). Dead wood is an important habitat element for many plants and animals and it adds organic matter to the soil.
