  • Harrison Mills is located in the District of Kent which lies within the coastal mountain system. It is dominated to the east by a high, massive, rugged mountain wall, rising abruptly from the Fraser Valley to an elevation of 2112m (6929 ft).
  • The District of Kent experiences very few seasonal temperature fluctuations. The summers are usually warm and dry with mild winters. We also have one of the longest frost-free growing seasons in Canada.
  • Kilby Park campground is a designated British Columbia Wildlife Watch area. It is an excellent location to view large concentrations of wintering eagles, snow geese, as well as graceful trumpeter swans that migrate to the area from Alaska. Other common bird species in the park area include ravens, geese, eagles, hawks, swans, finches, chickadees and jays. Click Here for more information about Birds in BC

  • Everyone who is active and outdoors during the summer months – including campers, picnickers, hikers and canoeists – should make sure they use all the protection measures available to avoid contact with mosquitoes and West Nile virus.
  • The park lies within the Coastal Western Hemlock biogeoclimatic zone and is representative of the Fraser floodplain landscape. Upland vegetation includes cottonwood, poplar, alder, and willow while the understory consists largely of red currant and salmonberry.
