Beatton River Campground closed due to vandalism

The Regional District is transferring the Beatton River Campground back to Crown land.

This means the park will remain closed to the public, until the Province’s Integrated Land Resource Management Bureau decides what to do with it.

Chair of the Peace River Regional District, Karen Goodings, says the park was being vandalized, and the district couldn’t keep maintaining it.

The Regional District has to keep the park closed during the transfer process. Trenches are dug across the road, and a sign is posted indicating the park is closed.

Goodings says it was the Regional District’s last resort.

Also, Copeland’s Beach on the Beatton River is leaving the Regional District’s hands and going back to the Crown. The beach was also being vandalized.
