Blackfoot Regional Park

Blackfoot Regional Park will be closed for the 2021 camping season on Sunday, September 19, 2021. The Park will reopen for camping in May, 2022.

Park History and Ecology

Blackfoot Park was established to commemorate the Old Clayhurst Ferry Crossing Site on the Peace River. The ferry was rendered obsolete by the construction of the Don Phillips fixed bridge connecting the rural areas of Clayhurst and Doe River.

The park is located approximately 75 kilometers east of Fort St. John and 51 kilometers north of Dawson Creek. The park consists of ever-changing river flats of silt and gravel bars topped with river-deposited driftwood.

A largely poplar/aspen forest canopy with some birch and spruce throughout, combined with plentiful water, seed and insect supply, provides an excellent habitat for a variety of bird populations. Mule deer, moose, black bears, and beavers also frequent the park on occasion.

Blackfoot Park is undergoing upgrades to serve you better, including new camp sites, sites with power, and 3 new/restored walking trails! A park caretaker also resides on-site for the summer months.

Reservations

Camping and park reservations will be closed for the 2021 season on September 19th.

Between May-September of each year, you can reserve campsites at Blackfoot Park up to 30 days in advance. Leave a message with the park caretaker at 250-759-4008 within at least 24 hours of your desired date, and they’ll call you back to confirm your reservation. It’s that easy! 13 sites can be reserved in advance, and the remaining 14 sites can be used on a first-come-first-served basis.

Iver Johnson Memorial Community Park

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. Recently, outhouses and a playground were installed as the beginning redevelopment phase.

A big PRRD thank you to Enbridge for their financial contribution towards the installation of the playground.

 

 

Minaker River Regional Park

The park is equipped with fire pits, picnic tables, outhouses and campsites and is extensively used by campers, fishermen, hunters and other backcountry travelers throughout the warmer months.

The park is located a quarter-mile west of Milepost 200 on the Alaska Highway on the Minaker River flats. Nestled in a mixed forest of poplar/aspen, spruce and pine it supports the annual migration of deer, moose and elk. Bears, martens and a variety of birds can also be seen throughout the park.

Note to Users: The park is occasionally inaccessible due to annual flooding. During this time the road is often flooded or deeply rutted making it impassable when wet.

Montney Centennial Regional Park

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 it is a popular spot to launch a boat and enjoy a day of fishing. The dominant vegetation in this park 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, 2 outhouses and rustic boat launch.

Spencer Tuck Regional Park

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 Peace River Regional District 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 6 fire pits, picnic tables, outhouses and a boat launch.
