About This Park

Anderson Flats, also known as Mission Flats or The Forks, is located within the traditional territory of the Gitxsan First Nation (People of the River of Mist) and is identified as Lax Lit Hetwit House territory.

Anderson Flats Provincial Park, established in 2007, is a 99 hectare area situated at the confluence of two of the most important rivers in northwest BC, the Bulkley and Skeena Rivers. The landscape of the park has been shaped by these rivers over thousands of years, creating the floodplain and terraced terrain. The park includes 1300 metres of river frontage on the Bulkley and Skeena Rivers, 17 hectares of floodplain and the forested terraces comprise the remaining upland area of the park.

Anderson Flats Park offers scenic and recreational values including regionally and provincially significant fishery values. The park provides public access to the riverfront on both the Bulkley and Skeena Rivers with excellent recreational fishing, camping and day-use recreation opportunities from June through September for all visitors including children, seniors and individuals with limited mobility.

The Skeena and Bulkley Rivers are both Class II waters; this provincial designation is indicative of highly productive streams that are carefully managed to preserve unique fishing opportunities. Both rivers contribute significantly to the province’s reputation as a world class fishing destination. Scenic values are exceptional and include views of the Rocher deBoule Range with the majestic Hagwilget Peak to the south.
