Yahk Provincial Park
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.
