Small River Caves Provincial Park

Feature type: Park
Province: British Columbia
Location: Located on the west side of the Small River drainage, high above the valley bottom
Official name listed at BC Geographical Names

Created in 2000 through the efforts of the Robson Valley Land and Resource Management Plan and the Protected Areas Strategy, Small River Caves Provincial Park protects a provincially important karst/ cave system.

Located on the west side of the Small River drainage, high above the valley bottom, this cave complex is remote and difficult to access. It is considered to be a very dangerous cave system that should only be attempted by highly experienced cavers.

This 1,818 hectare park lies at the transition zone between Engelmann Spruce-Subalpine Fir and the Alpine Tundra biogeoclimatic zones. The Small River logging road accesses the drainage but one must be aware of logging truck traffic at all times.

In order to properly protect this fragile ecosystem, we require that all cavers get permission from BC Parks at: 4051-18th Avenue, Prince George, BC V2N 1B3.
