  • Site Description: Located on both shores of the Bulkley River, downstream of Houston and upstream of Telkwa and Smithers, this 104-hectare Recreation Site welcomes users to a habitat that is unique, with its low elevation spruce and cottonwood forests and its ready access to the Bulkley River. Trails and campsites are within walking distance of parking and a wide path allows canoeists to carry or cart their craft directly to the rivershore. A small chalet, is a welcome retreat for recreationists. In addition, 10 km of cross-country trails are enjoyed by hikers, cyclists, skiers, snow-shoers, birders, and horse-back riders. Those passionate about fishing can also be seen, casting from the banks. A rustic camping area, with 8 sites (ranging in size from one tent to small groups) provides outhouses, fire rings, bear caches and picnic tables. In addition, there are 2 canoe pull-outs. The trail names, themselves, tell the story of these lands and water: Blowdown, Poplar, Old Mill and Plantation describe the forests; Peat Bog, Esker and Elk define other natural features and Widzin'kwa-- Wet'suwet'en for glacial blue-green waters--highlights the traditional First Nations history on this site. This Site is operated by the Round Lake Community Association: www.roundlakebc.com

  • Driving Directions: Travel ~18km south of Telkwa on Highway 16 to the rural community of Quick. This Recreation Site is located on West End Road (turn west on this road from Hwy 16). There are 2 parking areas serving this Site and Trails. Alternately, access to this Site can be gained by boat: it has upstream and downstream pullouts into larger day use areas.
