Yard Creek Campground opened for the season on June 5, 2020 and is scheduled to shut down for the season on September 7, 2020. Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, camping at Yard Creek will continue to be dependent on Provincial health restrictions.
Yard Creek Campground is a campground operated by the CSRD within the Yard Creek Provincial Park.
The Provincial Park is a 175 hectre (70.85 acre) park covering 60 hectares of beautiful forested uplands and 115 hectares of riparian habitat winding along the Eagle River. The Yard Creek Campground has 65 shaded RV and tent sites, a log picnic shelter, and toilet facilities. The landscape surrounding Yard Creek Park is part of the Interior wet-belt characterized by cedar and hemlock forest and lush undergrowth.
The park contains a variety of bird species including American dippers. These fascinating little birds dive into the icy waters of the creek and along under the water in search of water insects. Watch for them on the rocks along the creek. Yard Creek Provincial Park offers an extensive network of recreational nature trails (Eagle River Nature Trails) on the North side of the Trans-Canada Highway.
The trailhead is accessible from the parking lot located at the west end of the park. Yard Creek is land operated under a permit from the Ministry of Environment and maintenance agreement with the Malakwa Community Centre Association and the Columbia Shuswap Regional District.
