  • Site Description: This recreation site is CLOSED as it is no longer safe to use. The Capricorn (Meager) landslide of August 6, 2010 just barely missed the campsite, an island of trees helped to divert debris that was headed directly for the campsite. The photo to the right shows debris on either side of the campsite, and water trapped behind the campsite. This whole area is now unsafe to stay overnight in. Any natural landslide buffers have been eliminated; the riverbed has risen several meters with the landslide deposit. Do not camp in the river valley bottom, always seek higher ground for overnight use, anywhere along the Lillooet River. Road closures still occur due to extreme high heat.
