“Camping right along the River”
While we traveled our way to the Alaskan/Candian Highway (ALCAN) in Dawson Creek, British Columbia, we stayed overnight at a few nice spots which included Buckinghorse River Wayside Provincial Park, in British Columbia.
You can find all of our Campground Reviews here on our 2019 Campground Reviews page along with a map of the places we have stayed.
Buckinghorse River Wayside Provincial Park
Buckinghorse River Wayside Provincial Park is located on the Alaska Highway. This beautiful park by the river has nice large sites and pit toilets are available. There is water but it is well water and MUST be boiled before using.
Bring Bug Spray! The mosquitoes are pretty thick! All in all, this is a perfect stop after a long day on the highway. Self Service Gas/Diesel is available across the highway from this park. Cell service was not available inside the park.
This beautiful wayside campground is located right on the Alaska Highway. Approximately 108 miles northwest of the city of Fort St. John you’ll find the turnoff just north of the Buckinghorse River.
The park offers swimming, fishing, hiking, biking and wildlife viewing. Fishing licenses and bike helmets are required in British Columbia. Don’t forget to bring your bug spray, the only wildlife we encountered were the huge mosquitos. HAHA
Would we stay again?
We will definitely stay at Buckinghorse River Wayside Provincial Park again when in the area. Even though the bugs were out the setting was perfect for a relaxing evening after a very long travel day.
