Joffre Lakes Reopens

Update September 19, 2023 – Joffre Lakes Provincial Park will open for day-use starting Tuesday, September 19th. The park will be closed September 30, 2023 during National Day of Truth and Reconciliation.

Joffre Lakes Provincial Park will be closed until September 30, 2023.

The Líl̓wat and N’Quatqua First Nations say the closure is in support of a harvest celebration in the area they call Pipi7iyekw and widely known as Joffre Lakes Park.

In this time of reconciliation, Lil’wat Nation and N’Quatqua First Nation are asserting our Title and Rights to our shared unceded territory to take this time to harvest and gather our resources within our territories. Líl̓wat Nation and N’Quatqua First Nation are jointly shutting down the public access to Pipi7iyekw – Joffre Lakes Park until National Truth and Reconciliation Day, September 30th, 2023.

All Camping Reservations and Day-Use Passes will be cancelled by BC Parks.
