Canim Beach Park was established in 1956 as a Class A park. This park is popular with local residents for swimming and fishing. The combination gravel-pebble beach is a reminder of the glacial activity of the past.
This park lies in the traditional territory of the Secwepemc (Shuswap) First Nation. While no heritage sites are known within the park, please remember it is illegal to damage such sites or remove artifacts.
Beautiful forest typical of the Cariboo Basin, feauring mature Douglas-fir trees surround Canim Lake. The lake, popular for fishing, supports healthy populations of trout species.
Wildlife inhabiting this ecosystem, and possible to encounter around Canim Beach Park, include mule deer, coyote, beaver, otter, black bear, waterfowl, hawks and song birds.
