Nous y avons passé la nuit avec notre VR de 22 pieds, c’est environ le maximum possible. Nuit très calme. Nous sommes arrivés vers 20:00 pour laisser le stationnement aux marcheurs.

went here after a late arrival on the ferry. probably five vehicles there, some left early for the ferry and another arrive late like us. pit toilet nearby. Distant view of the harbor. hikers start arriving in a.m.

Decent spot to hunker down for the night since there aren't a lot of options in Rupert. 2 RVs and 3 other cars joined us for the night. The parking area isn't super flat, but we handled it for the night. The other side is better but is marked as a bus spot and feels exposed. Trail gets a fair amount of traffic but it died down by late evening.

Great quiet location! Road into the trail is paved so it’s easy to enter in the dark (we arrived at 1am after getting off the ferry). There’s a garbage bin and vault toilet located near the start of the trail, just past the interpretive sign.

not the best, but it's a good option, considering overnight parking isn't allowed in town. we stayed two nights. the first night we were by ourselves and the second one there was maybe 5-6 other vehicles. the 5km hike is very nice!

Lots of space, quiet during the night, more noise starting around 730am. We were joined in the parking lot by people using the trails in the morning, but no problems. No amenities, but the Oliver Lake area a couple minutes out of Prince Rupert has a pit toilet. I recommend!

Lots of space on flat ground. Not the quietest as the highway runs just above, but there is not much traffic at night and it’s protected by trees. Good for one night. No amenities.

Report Check-In

Side-to-side parking but free. No WiFi, but at least mobile coverage which is appreciated after hundreds of km without on the highways around here. Does the job for a one-night free stay.

Relatively quiet overnight parking at Butze Rapids Trailhead in Prince Rupert. Level spot hidden from the street.

Report Check-In

Very close to the ferry, so good before or after your long trip. Nothing special. It was quiet even though its next to the highway.

Report Check-In

Stayed one night. There was another camper there. 28ft would be the max length.
Protected from highway with hill and trees, so probably better than Oliver Lake.
Locals come and go for the hike. Nice 5km hike.
