Gate Closures - Weekend of July 27-28

All Island Timberlands regularly managed for weekend public access are closed weekends until further notice.  This is the result of the increasing dry, warm weather trend.

This includes gates at Shawnigan, Copper Canyon, Northwest Bay and Iron River.


  1. This gate closure posting extends over the August long weekend.

    Other gates may be closed without notice to restrict access due to the increasing fire danger risk. No campfires are permitted.

    Report wildfires to the Coastal Fire Center at 1‑800‑663‑5555 or *5555 from your mobile phone.

  2. This gate closure extends through the weekend of August 10-11.
