  • Site Description: In June 2014 the Supreme Court of Canada granted the Tsilhqot�in Nation a declaration of aboriginal title over a certain area. This recreation site is within the declared aboriginal title area. The Tsilhqot�in Nation has declared that recreation sites within the title area remain open for visitors, and that activities such as canoeing, hiking and light camping are encouraged in the area. All visitors must adhere to the Visitor Protocol (http://xeni.ca/Home/VisitorProtocols/tabid/68/Default.aspx) and Nemiah Declaration (http://www.tsilhqotin.ca/PDFs/Nemiah_Declaration.pdf). In addition to being available online, both documents can be viewed at the welcoming signs into the Xeni Gwet�in caretaker area. Hunting for all species is not permitted within the title area, however fishing remains open to visitors with a valid BC freshwater fishing license. For further information please contact the Tsilhqot�in National Government (www.tsilhqotin.ca). The striking contrast of two distinctly coloured rivers merging into one is what has attracted visitors to this recreation site for many years. At the confluence of the Chilko and Taseko Rivers, visitors will be treated to the spectacular contrast of the milky, glacial till-laden Taseko River mixing with the clear blue waters of the Chilko River. The Chilko-Taseko Junction recreation site is commonly used as a point for whitewater rafters and kayakers to put in or take out as they raft the mighty Chilko River.

  • Driving Directions: From Alexis Creek, travel 19 km west on Hwy 20 and turn left onto the Chilko-Newton Road. Travel 1.3 km and turn left. Cross the bridge over the Chilcotin River, and continue onto the 7000 Road. Travel 4.3 km and turn right off the 700 Road (if you cross the bridge over the Chilko River, you have gone too far). Four-wheel drive is recommended from this point. Continue another 11.5 km and turn left. The recreation site is reached in another 600 meters.
