The caribou River can be accessed via its intersection with highway 58. However it is not recommended for river travel as the Caribou flows into the Peace River at a point that makes it difficult to get back to a main road. Further more the river is quite shallow causing even Canoes to strike bottom.
The Caribou River Natural Area is 195 hectares in size, it is located east of High Level and Fort Vermilion.
Similar to the Ponton Natural Area, the Caribou River Natural Area supports a variety of fish species. It's habitat provides an excellent wildlife migration corridor between the Peace River and Caribou Mountains. The area has a diversity of plant community types, including remnant grasslands of the Peace River Parkland, a rare feature for the region.
