Squatting in Bella Coola

I was wondering if anyone could give me any information on squatting on "crown land" in Bella Coola. I am just looking for a quiet piece of forest to tuck myself away in with out encroaching on anyone"s land or property and be left alone. Any information would be greatly appreciated

I have no knowledge at all of Bella Coola so can't really help you with specifics. It is unfortunate that you have been shortsheeted with information so far.

I'm pretty sure you can't legally camp anywhere but designated campsites in BC. Bears would be an issue, which you can read about here. In fact I think bears would be a good reason to be pretty cautious about camping in isolation. There's info on this site about bears:

Check out this book by James Shelton who may still live about 16 km from Bella Coola. There are 22 reviews about it on this site: amazon.ca/Bear-attacks-The-deadly-truth/dp/0…

And rain is no stranger to the Bella Coola Valley:

I'm not sure what your quest is, but I hope you find a way to do it safely.
