Welcome to the new BC Parks website

Epsom Park



There are no designated trails. Visitors may park by the bench overlooking the river and hike the remainder of the road to the railway tracks to access the river. This road is short in length but quite steep.


At low water levels in late July and August, there is a pebble beach area but visitors must use caution in and around the swift flowing river. There are no lifeguards on duty at provincial parks.


There are canoeing or kayaking opportunities on the river but visitors need to make themselves aware of the river’s gradient before attempting navigation. If launching from the park, the boat must be portaged over the railway tracks.


The Thompson River provides opportunity to fish for trout, salmon and steelhead. Anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia must have an appropriate licence.

Pets on leash

Pets/domestic animals must be on a leash at all times. 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. Please check the BC Hunting & Trapping Regulations Synopsis for more information.
