New camping rules introduced for Kispiox Valley Rodeo

The Kispiox Valley Rodeo is soon and some changes around camping are coming.

The Kispiox Valley Rodeo is coming up and some changes around camping are coming.

Spokesperson Brenda Nelson said this year they will be enforcing the policy of no early camping at the rodeo grounds. She said this is in response to parking and camping problems in the past. Campers may start coming in on Thursday, May 29 from 5 to 9 p.m. and then after 8 a.m. on Friday for the rest of the weekend. Nelson said there are no reservations.

The gates will be locked during the week prior to the rodeo. There is a private campground at 2058 Kispiox Valley Road that campers can use as an alternative before the event.

The rodeo will be held on May 31 to June 1. There will be entertainment and rodeo action with food concessions, including the famous BBQ Beef.
