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

Although we ventured well outside what was considered the prime viewing time for eagles, the information provided by BC Parks regarding the provincial park is extremely misleading. The Brackendale Eagles Provincial Park is not accessible without having to negotiate the Squamish River. The confusing and...More

This is an amazing place to take your time to sit and watch mother nature do some of her finest work. The eagles are in full force December-February and some lucky moments will include seals, otters, bear, dear and blue harren, as I have seen...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!

Went on a rainy day in November. Even still we saw 7 bald eagles in a very short time. Parked across from the bistro and walked to the viewing area. Nice covered shelter with very interesting info. It is a beautiful spot.
