Fodor's Review

This 1,600-acre park lies along the Hummingbird Highway between Mile 16.5 to 19 in Stann Creek District. Established in 2001, the park is still relatively young, and although it offers no spectacular sights, it does have primitive hiking trails and the Barquedier Waterfall (locally sometimes called Bak-a-Der Waterfall), about a 20-minute hike from the entrance. The park is part of a community co-management program for parks and reserves, in this case with the Steadfast Tourism and Conservation Association of Steadfast village, which co-manages it with the Belize Forest Department. It's best to enter the park via the northern entrance at Mile 16.5 of the Hummingbird Highway. Camping is available in the park for BZ$20 per person, plus the park entrance fee.
