Until further notice Provincial Parks are closed. BC Forest Service is currently fully engaged in fighting numerous active wildfires in the Cariboo Region.  Alert and Evacuations for areas from 100 Mile to Quesnel are in effect. RCMP would like the roads to remain clear for evacuees. Below I compiled a list of information websites with up to date information. Emergency centers are operating at full capacity. Please be patient. Emergency workers, firefighters, police and everyone else are all doing the best job they can under trying and exhausting circumstances.

Hello fellow campers.

 

‘Revision to campsite reservations policy’

Due to the high volume of negative phone calls about our recent ‘No Reservation’ policy we have decided to accept reservations but keep a goodly percentage of campsites free for highway traffic drop-ins.

 ‘CPPP’ has new park attendants as of May 2017. Unfortunately Peter M. will be leaving us. We, the parks board, will do our best to make your camping experience an enjoyable one. Any questions regarding the new policy please contact – Tate Patton, chairman, ‘CPPP’. 250-790-2106. Or t.patton@xplornet.com

Cedar Point Provincial Park  – Class ‘C’, is located at 6013 Cedar Creek Road in Likely. The park is situated on Quesnel Lake, approximately five kilometres from the town of Likely in a bay close to the mouth of  Quesnel Lake, the deepest fjord lake in North America. Enjoy the experience of camping in an old growth Cedar Grove.

Likely is situated in an inland rainforest area on Quesnel Lake in the foothills of the Cariboo Mountains. It is where the back road to Barkerville begins. The Quesnel Forks restoration site, as well as the Bullion Pit, draws history buffs. There are an abundance of Rec sites and a wealth of historical areas and information to enrich our understanding of early settlements in the area.

Old growth cedars are located throughout the park including the campground area.Cedar Point Park campsite copy

Camping and Recreation Sites

Recommended information at Recreation Sites and Trails BC

Responsible Site and Trail Use

Recreation sites and trails are located in BC’s natural forests. By following the guidelines outlined in this section, we can protect our forests for generations to come.

“Take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but footprints.” Leave No Trace

When using recreation sites, users are encouraged to strive for no trace camping. In other words, when you leave a site, it should be in no worse condition than when you came. What you bring to a site, you take home with you – PACK-IN, PACK-OUT. This includes biodegradable scraps such as fruit peelings as they will likely not decompose before the next group of campers uses the site.

When using recreation trails, it is important to stay on designated trails only to protect the surrounding ecosystem.

Here are seven principles of Leave No Trace use that we strive for at our recreation sites and trails: Ladies Creek

1. Plan Ahead and Prepare

2. Travel and Camp On Durable Surface

3. Dispose of Waste Properly

4. Leave What You Find

5. Minimize Campfire Impacts

6. Respect Wildlife

7. Be Considerate of Other Visitors
