After my backpacking trip, I wanted to visit the central region of the park and do a dayhike from a car camping spot. It was good to check out this area and I'm sure I will be back one day.

Ralph River campground. There are two car campgrounds in this valley. This one is farther in. Despite it being first-come, first-serve, and it being a hot and sunny weekend, the campground was about half full.

Buttle Lake is tens of miles long and dominates the center of the park.

Flower Ridge.
