The Stikine River Recreation Area encompasses one of Canada's unmatched geological features. Eighty km of vertical sedimentary and volcanic rock canyon winds its way through the area giving home to the unnavigable Stikine River. This grand canyon is located in the rainshadow of the Coast Mountains. Open forests and grasslands are unique to the area and here species such as mountain goat, bears, moose, caribou, coyotes and abundant birdlife are resident.

This area was the original home of the Tahtlan Indians. This band lives in the nearby communities of Telegraph Creek, Dease Lake and Iskut today. The Stikine River area was first explored by Russian fur traders in the late 1700's and early 1800's but the first direct European contact was made by developers of the Collins Overland Telegraph Trail in the mid 1860's. This route was abandoned after cable was laid across the Atlantic, linking North America and Europe. Telegraph Creek and Glenora were swamped by prospectors during the Cassier Gold Rush of 1873-1874.

The recreation area is located on Telegraph Creek Road, 110 kilometres from Dease Lake.
