Cabins / Huts / Yurts

Cabins / Huts / Yurts

Prior approval is needed for use of Haisla Nation cabins. Please contact the Haisla Nation at 250-639-9361 (ext. 207 or 213).

A trapper’s cabin, built by the Haisla Nation, adjacent to the north side of the conservancy at Bishop Cove, is available for public use. Located by the creek mouth in Bishop Cove, the cabin is 15’ x 12’ with 2 double bunk beds, and is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Be prepared to sleep outside if the cabin is full.



Firewood is not provided. If you must have a fire, please burn only dead and down wood, and be sure to fully extinguish the fire when done. Dead wood is an important habitat element for many plants and animals and it adds organic matter to the soil so please use it conservatively, if at all. We encourage visitors to conserve wood and protect the environment by minimizing the use of campfires and using camp stoves instead. Limited burning hours or campfire bans may be implemented during extremely hot weather conditions.
