The site is easily located on the east end of the 6 Mile River Bridge. The Tagish Bridge Recreation Site is most popular because of its gravel boat launch. The small river site provides an opportunity for picnics, birdwatching, canoeing, fishing and boating activities.
The boat launch is used regularly for fishing and launching canoes. The Tagish Bridge Recreation Site provides easy and quick access to 6 Mile River, Tagish Lake and Marsh Lake.
There is a small sandy beach in the recreation site. From the shores one can set up chairs and enjoy some good birdwatching and marine activity opportunities. It is in the spring months when thousands of swans, ducks, geese and other waterfowl flock to the region when migrating.
