Plan Ahead.

Like you, we’re passionate about exploring BC and, in particular, northern Vancouver Island. But now is not the time for inter-community travel; stay in your community and support your local businesses if you can.⁠ We look forward to welcoming visitors to the region again when the time is right.⁠

Do your part now, so we can all explore Vancouver Island again later. In the meantime, find the official links below for the most up-to-date information.

For travel updates in British Columbia, please visit Destination BC’s traveller resource guide here, and read about the current province-wide restrictions here.
For travel updates in Canada, please visit Destination Canada’s traveller resource guide.

Important Information For Visiting Parks

  • Facilities such as outhouses and food caches will receive only intermittent service
  • Due to COVID-19 concerns, the Nels Bight ranger station cabin will be closed to public access until further notice; Campers must be self-sufficient and prepared to camp
  • Visitors to the park should bring their own supplies and be self-sufficient
  • Visitors are responsible for ensuring they bring hygiene products (e.g., hand sanitizer) as availability cannot be guaranteed
  • Visitors need to take personal responsibility for their own safety, refraining from touching surfaces unnecessarily and washing hands or using hand sanitizer frequently
  • If visitors are feeling unwell, please stay home and visit another time
  • Visitors should plan ahead and be prepared: http://bcparks.ca/visiting/know-before/, http://bcparks.ca/covid-19/docs/Camping-During-COVID-19-Brochure.pdf?v=1599779166784
