  1. Is the Nanaimo River Rd gate open this week (17th) or the weekend (23rd-24th)?

  3. There are numerous gates located along the Nanaimo River Road but the majority belong to Timberwest and Island Timberlands. Since this is an Island Timberlands Blog, I have to assume you are referring to the gate which controls access into the Nanaimo Watershed. This area has been historically referred to as "The River Camp". This area is closed to the public all year long except for the Deer hunting season; which goes from September to early December.
