The closure of the Berg Lake Trail was the main contributor to low reservation numbers at Mount Robson Provincial Park in 2022 according to the province.
The trail closure was due to extensive flooding in relation to last year’s Heat Dome.
Construction was underway this year to repair the trail, with the hope that it will be partially open as far as Kinney Lake for campers and day users next year.
In addition, Whiskers Point saw high reservation numbers during the 2022 camping season despite having a large hazard tree removal project last winter.
The province stated while easy access to McLeod Lake remains a highlight of Whiskers Point, another main draw is the new accessible playground installed in the summer of 2021.
As a whole, provincial parks surrounding the PG area have seen an uptick in visitors over the past two years.
