Naikoon Provincial Park - Agate Beach

Mis à jour par Fraser Riverkeeper

Agate Beach is located in at the Northwestern edge of Naikoon Provincial Park at the site of the Agate Beach Campground. This campground offers vehicle accessible campsites, pit toilets, and a cold water tap. The area is very famous for its rocky and sandy beach. Many of the rocks on the beach are smooth and rounded from years of ocean wear, and one can find agate rock here. Agate is a difficult rock to find, is made from a silica solution at relatively shallow depths, and is used in jewelry making.

Northern Health's responsibility in Northern British Columbia is from the Queen Charlotte Islands to the Alberta border, and as far south as Quesnel. There is a map of Northern Health’s jurisdictional boundaries on the Northern Health website at https://northernhealth.ca/AboutUs.aspx

British Columbia health departments select and test water quality found at primary (swimming) and secondary (non-swimming) contact beaches across the province, following the Canadian Recreational Water Quality Guidelines. Most health departments in the interior test for E. coli from May to September (except for Vancouver Island Health Authority, which tests from June to September). Samples are collected weekly with a minimum of 5 test samples collected in a month. Warnings are posted by Fraser Riverkeeper if the 30-day geometric mean rises above 100 E. coli / 100 ml of water. There is currently no regular monitoring of these beaches.
