I went to Squamish on a whim because I knew that even if there were no eagles, I'd have a great ride. The scenery driving up to Squamish is literally breathtaking, I had to keep reminding myself to breathe! I got to the Brackendale River...More

Not sure they'll be needing any volunteers to count the Eagles this yr, save yourself a trip, as there's been lots of rain which has washed the salmon away=not many Eagles to see at all, only a handful. Can't see it getting any better this...More

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

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

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.
