Kitson Island Marine Provincial Park

Port Edward, British Columbia

Kitson Island Marine Provincial Parks is not really a swimming destination as water can be cold and rough at the shorelines. There is also no drinking water provided, nor will you find developed trails. The area is popular for kayakers and anglers (tidal and groundfish).

While camping is allowed, there are no firepits and may be limited fires allowed in the area. No camping facilities are provided.

SOURCE INFORMATION

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.
