Beaver Valley Provincial Park was established as a result of the Cariboo-Chilcotin Land-Use Plan Goal 2 (Special Feature) process.
It is characterized by annually inundated floodplain and a chain of lakes and wetlands connected by a meandering stream. The unique combination of a long growing season, a moist hot climate and the biologically rich stream/wetland/lake complex make the park highly productive in terms of aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems.
Species at risk found in the area include trumpeter swans, sandhill cranes, fishers, northern bitterns, wolverine, sharp-tailed grouse, and great blue heron.
The park is located approximately 50 kilometres southeast of Quesnel.
BC Parks honours Indigenous Peoples’ connection to the land and respects the importance of their diverse teachings, traditions, and practices within these territories. This park webpage may not adequately represent the full history of this park and the connection of Indigenous Peoples to this land. 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.
