Other "Skookumchucks in BC"
In common use, referring to Skookumchuck as a placename, may refer to two other specific locations in British Columbia:
- The unrelated marine tidal rapids at Skookumchuck Narrows — the Skookumchuck, as it is the largest and most powerful of the British Columbia Coast's saltwater rapids — are several hundred kilometres west on the province's Sunshine Coast, where the narrow mouth of Sechelt Inlet spills out that fjord's contents into Jervis Inlet.
- The native community and historic Catholic mission ghost town of Skookumchuck Hot Springs, also known as Skatin in the St'at'imcets (Lillooet) language, lies on the Lillooet River south of Pemberton, about 20 miles nearly due east of the resort of Whistler on the inland side of the Garibaldi Ranges.
- Skookumchuck Rapids Provincial Park is located on the Shuswap River just below the outlet of Mabel Lake in the Monashee region northeast of the Okanagan.
