Arrowstone Provincial Park is a wilderness area and protects one of the largest undisturbed valleys in the dry southern interior and also contains large stands of old-growth Douglas fir.
The park allows hiking in a relatively pristine environment that is remote, yet is accessible to a major highway. A forestry road follows a section of the park’s boundary, providing opportunities to enter the park from various locations. Backcountry camping, nature appreciation, wildlife viewing, photography and hunting opportunities also exist in the park.
Wilderness camping is permitted. There are no developed or designated camping areas in this park. Backpackers need to practice no impact camping. This area is entirely user-maintained.
Fishing opportunities for brook trout are at Tsotin Lake. Anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia must have an appropriate licence.
Pets/domestic animals must be on a leash at all times and are not allowed in beach areas or park buildings. You are responsible for their behaviour and must dispose of their excrement. Backcountry areas are not suitable for dogs or other pets due to wildlife issues and the potential for problems with bears.
Hunting is permitted only during lawful game hunting season. Check the Hunting and Trapping Regulations Synopsis for more information.
Northeast of Cache Creek in the Thompson River Basin, the area is accessed via Battle Creek Forest Road or via the Back Valley Road from Deadman Valley to Cache Creek.
BC Parks honours Indigenous Peoples’ connection to the land and respects the importance of their diverse teachings, traditions, and practices within these territories.

We are working in partnership with Indigenous Peoples to update our websites so that they better reflect the history and cultures of these special places.
