Living in British Columbia we are spoiled by the abundance of eagle sitings. Vancouverites can often see eagles in the city parks. For example, I often see eagles along Spanish Banks. However, Brackendale is known for the large numbers of eagles that collect there when...More

Beautiful spot to have lunch or dinner at! The food is excellent. In October / November you can come and watch the eagles nesting across on the other side of the river! Very peaceful and relaxing

The path along the river was great. Many signs with information about the area. We were off season for the eagles but it was beautiful. Saw deer across the river and seals in the river.

There is very little signage for this site and we drove past before we realised where we were. The car park is adequate and there is covered seating alongside the water. We saw 3 bald eagles but apparently at times they are more evident. Pleasant...More

The Brackendale Eagles Provincial Park is not accessible without having to negotiate the Squamish River. The confusing and...More

The right time to visit here is late autumn when eagles are seen by the hundreds. Fortunately we saw a few resident bald eagles which made the trip more worthwhile.

We didn't see any eagles but we walked the short trail and enjoyed the views. The information on the display boards was educational.

Finally visited the area after years of driving by and was most impressed. Information boards along the dyke let one know all about the eagles in the area. A great place to sit back and watch these great birds - The bald eagle!
