Burns Lake Provincial Park is a 65ha parcel of land on the south shore of Burns Lake, 4km to the southeast of the village of Burns Lake. This small park was established in 2001 and lies within the asserted traditional territories of the Burns Lake Band, the Wet’suwet’en and the Carrier-Sekani Tribal Council. The park includes a peninsula jutting into Burns Lake, gently rolling terrain with a young forest canopy of aspen, cottonwood, birch, pine and spruce. There are no facilities within the park.
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.
