Located on the massive Babine Lake, Red Bluff Provincial Park is named for iron-stained cliffs that plunge into Babine Lake. The park is a pleasant spot to pull out the old picnic basket, and after lunch go for a swim in Babine Lake.
Babine Lake is filled with huge fish. Rainbow trout grow as big as 5.5 kg, while char range up to 9 kg. A trail system leads to sweeping views of big Babine Lake with opportunities for viewing wildlife. Smithers Landing, Pendleton Bay, Topley Landing Provincial Park, and Red Bluff Provincial Parks are all located on Babine Lake.
It will probably take you over a week to canoe Babine Lake, British Columbia’s longest (but not largest) lake at 177 km from tip to tip. You can also put in and take out at many places along the lake, including Smithers and Pendleton Bay Provincial Park. Hug the shore of this huge lake, as the weather can change rapidly.
Red Bluff Provincial Park provides 27 vehicle/tent campsites. Facilities provided include a boat launch, pit toilets, firewood and water. The campground is open from May to September and fees are collected during this time.
Red Bluff Provincial Park is located in Northern British Columbia, 28 miles (45 km) north of Topley off Highway 16.
