The Kiskatinaw Campground and Provincial Park is closed until further notice due to landslide risk.

As the park is below the Kiskatinaw Curved Bridge, which is closed due to landsliding affecting bridge stability - it made sense to close the campground from the public as well.

Earlier this month the Old Kiskatinaw Bridge was closed to vehicle traffic - on the morning of June 4. 

Engineering staff closed the bridge and it will remain closed until the material stops moving and the bridge can be assessed. Geotechnical and structural engineers, as well as operational staff are on site assessing the situation.

The wooden bridge was built in the early 1940s during construction of the Alaska Highway. A new modern bridge was built upstream over the Kiskatinaw River in the 1970s, when the highway was rerouted.
