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). Choelquoit Lake Recreation Site is a good picnic rest stop.
