The striking contrast of two distinctly coloured rivers merging into one is what has attracted visitors to this recreation site for many years. At the confluence of the Chilko and Taseko Rivers, visitors will be treated to the spectacular contrast of the milky, glacial till-laden Taseko River mixing with the clear blue waters of the Chilko River. The Chilko-Taseko Junction recreation site is commonly used as a point for whitewater rafters and kayakers to put in or take out as they raft the mighty Chilko River.
