Exchamsiks River Provincial Park is one of the most beautifully situated parks in the region. The coastal Sitka spruce rainforest towers over this park at the confluence of the Exchamsiks and Skeena Rivers west of Terrace.

Hiking trails are easily accessed throughout the forest and individuals can stroll through the magnificent forest at their own pace. If you are lucky, you might be able to spot the extremely rare Kermodei bear - these are sometimes spotted in the Skeena Valley.

The Skeena watershed offers some of the largest steelhead and salmon in the world. The average chinook caught weighs in at 16 to 23 kg (35 to 50 pounds), but they can be 40 kg (90 pounds) or larger. Fish for coho in the Skeena and its tributaries, the Exchamsiks, Kasiks, Gitnadoix, Exstew, Lakelse, and Kitsumkalum Rivers, as well as the Kitimat and Nass River system.

Salmon runs peak in September and October, although coho start to appear in July and don't completely disappear until December. Fishing and boating are popular recreational activities within the park. Exchamsiks River Provincial Park provides a picnic day use area for those passing through from May to September.

Exchamsiks River Provincial Park is located in northwest British Columbia, approximately 30 miles (50 km) southwest of Terrace on Highway 16.
