Swan Lake Kispiox River Provincial Park contains rivers, a chain of lakes, and swamps that provides an outstanding opportunity for water-related adventure.
Swan Lake Kispiox River Provincial Park lies within the traditional territories of the Gitanyow and Gitxsan First Nations. This park and the surrounding area are important to First Nations peoples for sustenance and cultural activities. The closed canopy old-growth interior cedar and hemlock forest provides habitat for grizzlies and moose. The park is also home to ospreys, gulls, terns, and loons, as well as waterfowl such as swans, buffleads, goldeneyes, and common mergansers. Trumpeter swans are known to winter on Club Creek.
Anglers in search of rainbow and cutthroat trout, Dolly Varden char, whitefish, coho, chinook, sockeye, chum, pink and steelhead that migrate up the Kispiox River each summer.

Walk-in wilderness camping opportunities exist along Brown Bear and Swan Lakes. Please keep in mind this is a remote area; come prepared for wilderness travel.
