Few places on earth can match the raw beauty and spectacular environmental bio-diversity of the Muskwa-Kechika Management Area (M-KMA). The M-KMA encompasses 6.4 million hectares (15 million acres), an area roughly the size of Ireland. Unlike a park, the M-KMA comprises a number of land use areas including parks designated for varying levels of protection, conservation and use. This magnificent area is located in northeastern British Columbia and is bordered by the communities of Fort Nelson, Fort St. John and Mackenzie. Areas of interest for motorists include Stone Mountain, Muncho Lake and Liard River Hot Springs Provincial Parks.
