One of the most popular parks in the province is partly closed during the August long weekend.
According to BC Parks, Garibaldi Lake Campground is closed due to flooding.
The combination of an unseasonably large snowpack and high heat has caused the lake to rise, flooding the campground.
PSA: We were told by park rangers to leave the campground today at Garibaldi Lake. It will be closed until further notice due to flooding! The whole trail was under water at the lake!! #vancouver #vancouverbc #garibaldi #longweekend #squamish #whistler #pemberton #whistlerapchallenge #vancouverfoodie #garibaldilake
“BC Parks and the Conservation Officer Service have been unsuccessful at trapping the bear, indicating that it has likely moved on,” said BC Parks.
