Located 50 km east of Bella Coola along Highway 20 this park's triangular area spreads over 506,000 hectares.It offers a choice of several vehicle accessible sites, wilderness camping along the canoe portage routes or guided tours and much more. Aside from offering some of the most spectacular scenery in North America, Tweedsmuir is a magnet for outdoor recreationists. Favourite activities include angling, hiking, horseback riding on wilderness trails, camping (including vehicle-access campsites), and canoeing the Turner Lake Chain. Hunlen Falls, at the north end of Turner Lake, is a major attraction, plunging 260 metres and disappearing in a cloud of spray before entering the Atnarko River. The Atnarko and Bella Coola Valleys provide critical habitat for bears and people need to be bear aware. Areas of the park are open to hunting during allotted seasons. Winter recreation is also popular at Tweedsmuir South Provincial Park and there are several areas open to snowmobile vehicles.
