Blackfoot Regional Park is located approximately 75 kilometers east of Fort St. John and 51 kilometers north of Dawson Creek. The parks boasts scenic views of the mighty Peace River, contains unique forest landscapes and diverse wildlife ecology. Local residents established the park with a crew of summer students in 1972 through a grant from the Province of British Columbia. The Regional District assumed maintenance ownership of the property by 1988.

The park is situated near the historic site of the Clayhurst ferry crossing, which was in use until 1986 when the Don Phillips Bridge was constructed and connected the communities of Clayhurst and Doe River.

New amenities and services at Blackfoot include walking trails, a full-time park caretaker, on-site wood purchase, new campsites with and without electrical hook-ups, updated park buildings and outhouses, updated fire pits, picnic tables and signage.

There is no internet or cellular phone service at Blackfoot Park.

 

Reservations

Park reservations open for the 2024 season on April 20, 2024 at 9:00 am (MST) through Let’s Camp and are accepted up to 30 days in advance.

32 sites can be reserved, with the remaining 8 sites used on a first-come-first-served basis. Campsites are limited to a maximum of 8 people per site; you can visit friends and family in other campsites, but heads on pillows need to be in your own campsite.

 

Drive-In Reservations

If you do not have a site booking ahead of arriving at the park, the caretaker will advise visitors of site availability and take payment on site via cash or credit card.

 

Reservation Fees

Must be paid online through Let’s Camp or by cash for drive-in reservations to the park caretaker. Additional camping units will be charged at the same rate as the primary camping unit, with the exception of powered sites.

  • $25 per night for sites with electrical hook-ups (additional units $20 per night)
  • $20 per night for sites without power (additional units $20 per night)
  • $10 per night for tent sites (additional tents $10 per night)
  • $5 for additional ‘non-camping’ vehicles parked on site – check with the park caretakers first to see what can fit at your campsite.

 

Refund policy

All reservations are refundable if you cancel within five (5) days of your check in date, and are refunded to the original method of payment. Drive-in reservations are non-refundable.

A $10 reservation fee is non-refundable and charged with each booking order including drive-in reservations.
If you cancel within five (5) days of your booking order, you will receive your fees back minus a $10 cancellation fee, and the fee charged by the service provider ($3-$5 depending on the value of your order) for use of Let’s Camp.

 


Group Camping

The best way to ensure you can camp together is to plan ahead. Reserve your campsites in advance, check with the park caretakers on the site capacity and remember no more than 8 people can camp in each campsite. Have a great time visiting others in their campsites or others visiting yours, but remember that 11:00 pm is quiet time.

      1. have ATV’s remain on the back of the owner’s truck or trailer while in the campsite.  ATV’s may be unloaded from trucks or trailers in the parking area and then driven out of the park through the ATV area.  Upon return to the park, the ATV(s) must be loaded back on the truck or trailer, or

Iver Johnson

The Regional District acquired Iver Johnson Memorial Community Park in 1995 and, in association with corporate partners, installed park equipment, signage and a fence. The park was maintained by the Hasler Flat Community Group for a number of years. In 2017 the community requested that the park be upgraded to create a gathering space for the community that includes a safe place for kids to play.

In 2021, outhouses and a playground were installed as the beginning redevelopment phase. The PRRD thanks Enbridge for their generous financial contribution towards the installation of the playground.

 

 

Montney Centennial

The Montney Recreation Commission began developing the site as a Canada Centennial (1867-1967) project. At the Commission’s request, the Regional District assumed tenure of the park in March 1988. Located on the northeast side of Charlie Lake, the park is a popular spot to launch a boat and enjoy a day of fishing. The dominant vegetation is poplar/aspen trees and due to the protective canopy and proximity to the lake, a varied bird population exists in the park.

The park includes a picnic area with fire pits, two (2) outhouses and boat launch.

Spencer Tuck

Established in 1962, the land comprising Spencer Tuck Park was originally donated to the Province of BC through the generosity of Mrs. Esme Tuck, a pioneer of the Moberly Lake area, in memory of her husband Spencer. The PRRD now owns the park located on the north side of Moberly Lake, approximately 32 kms north of Chetwynd. Poplar/aspen and spruce trees are found throughout the park and up to the shores of the gravel beach of Moberly Lake.

The lakeshore day use park includes six (6) fire pits, picnic tables, outhouses and a boat launch.
