Northern Rockies Regional Municipality (NRRM) wants to open Muncho Lake Lodge & RV Park as soon as possible, a report said.

On July 19, Gary Foster, the Mayor of NRRM and Peace River North MLA Dan Davies, as well as Edward Hoffman, Regional Director Northern Region, BC Parks, wrote a letter to George Heyman (Minister of Environment and Climate Change Strategy) expressing their support for the opening of the campground.

The letter states that the Muncho Lake Lodge & Campground, previously owned by the private sector, was acquired by BC Parks in 2020 in order to add a BC Parks campground to the area, the report said.

Foster claims that all the parks in the area, including Strawberry Flats, Liard River Hot Springs, and MacDonald, were used well before the COVID-19 pandemic, the report mentioned.

Only the Liard River Hot Springs campground, out of all four parks, is currently open for registration. The other three campgrounds operate on a first-come-first-served system.

The letter stated an issue regarding campers trying to reserve a spot at the campground, which is located two hours from Fort Nelson. Cell phone service was also not available.

The letter states that “since the campground previously known as Muncho lake Lodge & RV Park was closed, there has been an evident impact on supply and demand of campsites in the Muncho Lake area.”

According to the report, the NRRM expects a rise in rural and remote recreation after the COVID-19 pandemic. The NRRM expects a busy summer 2022 camping season and wants to activate the Muncho Lake campground as soon as possible.
