  • Site Description: The hidden gem of Smithers! A unique ecosystem with a campsite and trails set in a mature forest with stunning views of the spectacular Twin Falls coming down from Lake Kathlyn glacier on Hudson Bay Mountain. This site has 4 designated camp sites but is primarily used for day-use, picnicking and hiking to the viewing platform or Glacier Gulch trail. Mountain goats can be seen on the cliffs and near the trails, please ensure pets are on leash when goats are present. The access road is narrow with sharp corners, larger vehicles should use caution, there are limited turn around spots and the road is not plowed during winter. The site is located within avalanche terrain so please know the risks, plan your trip carefully and carry the appropriate gear/safety equipment. This site has a large parking lot for vehicles and RV's.
