Premier Listings for White Ridge Park
White Ridge Provincial Park extends from the boundary of Strathcona Provincial Park northwest to the Gold River Highway corridor on Vancouver Island.
The park protects important deer and elk habitat and derives its name from the white limestone and karst topography for which the area is internationally known.
The 1,343-hectare White Ridge Park includes a prominent mid-elevation forested ridge that forms the eastern viewscape of the community of Gold River.
Karst topography is a sensitive area and is easily damaged. Although there may be potential for caving opportunities in the future, current use for caving is not recommended until a management plan is complete.
There are no designated campsites at this park, however random wilderness camping is allowed. No facilities are provided. White Ridge Provincial Park is open year round, however access roads may become snowbound in the winter.
White Ridge Provincial Park is located 2.5 miles (4 km) west of Gold River and is accessed off Gold River Highway 28 via the BR 80 logging road.
