Premier Listings for Hitchie Creek Park

Hitchie Creek Provincial Park is west of Nitinat Lake, adjacent to the West Coast Trail Unit of Pacific Rim National Park. This 226-hectare wilderness area is exceptionally beautiful, enhanced by the remote and rugged nature of the park.

Hitchie Creek Park protects old-growth lowland rainforest as well as river and lake ecosystems. The creek provides a key wildlife corridor for large species moving through the watershed, such as Roosevelt elk, black bears, cougars and wolves. A wide range of species – from salamanders to songbirds – reside in Hitchie Creek Provincial Park, which also protects potential habitat for species at risk like the endangered Marbled Murrelet and Keen’s long-eared myotis.

This undeveloped park provides opportunities for wildlife viewing, nature appreciation and wilderness camping. Nearby Nitinat Lake in the adjacent Pacific Rim National Park Reserve is a popular recreation destination for swimmers, boaters, paddlers and anglers.

True to its wilderness nature, no facilities are provided in the park.

Hitchie Creek Provincial Park is located between Bamfield and Port Renfrew on Southern Vancouver Island. There is no road or boat access to Hitchie Creek Park, which can only be reached by hiking from Nitinat Lake. The lake lies alongside the Nitinat Main logging road, with 4×4 access from distant Port Alberni or Bamfield.
