East Pine Provincial Park is beautifully situated in the foothills of the northern Rocky Mountains. The 14.2-hectare park offers fishing, canoeing and boating recreation, and is a popular put-in point for paddlers as the East Pine River flows into the Murray River, 25 km east of Chetwynd.
Depending on how fast you paddle, canoeing the Murray River can be a few hours or a few days. Due to a swift current and sweepers along the river banks, canoers and kayakers must exercise caution.
One of the most outstanding features on this trip is Kinuseo Falls. At 60 metres (197 feet), Kinuseo Falls is slightly taller than Niagara Falls.
Large mammals such as moose, white tail deer, mule deer and black bear are common throughout the area. Squirrels, chipmunks, beaver, muskrat and river otters are also likely to be seen, along with numerous waterfowl and shorebirds.
The only facilities in the park are pit toilets and a boat launch. A swift current makes the East Pine River unsuitable for swimming.
East Pine Provincial Park is located 19 miles (30 kms) east of Chetwynd on Highway 97 in Northern British Columbia.
