If you enter with your vehicle you risk being locked in; we will not send staff out to open any gate for you after hours as listed above, or if it is not posted to be open.  
You will have to pay a tow truck to have your vehicle removed. 
Firewood harvesting for personal use is available for weekends; please review the firewood specific blog post for the weekend.  If you have questions or comments, post to the blog under the firewood posting.
No fires, no camping, and no off-road vehicles (i.e. ATVs, UTVs, buggies or side-by-sides) are authorized on our private property.


  1. Hi there I'm just wondering if Copper Canyon will be open past the 22 km gate in the foreseeable future? Thank you.

  2. There is a low likelihood we'll open up this area for access in the near future. However the property accessed below 22km is likely to stay open for the upcoming weekends.

  3. Will Glenora be open Apr 30- May 1 and if so where/how do I pay for permit? I paid last week for a permit for what I thought was Glenora on the website under the Shawnigan region and wound up with a Mines Rd. permit and Glenora was listed as open but no ability to select that location was offered.

  4. Firewood related questions are best posted under blog posts specific to firewood harvesting.
    The table presented under the firewood post section describes the general area where the map is issued for where there is firewood. Our gate opening schedule will support firewood locations, but additional gates may be open or closed where there is not firewood.
