The park is situated in the Hart Ranges of the Canadian Rockies. This park protects one of the most remarkable caves, the nationally significant Fang Cave complex, which includes the ninth longest cave in Canada. Other caves include the Tooth Decave and Window on the West.
The park also provides a scenic, easily accessible destination for backcountry recreation. It includes picturesque alpine bowls, three small alpine lakes, and distinctive limestone pinnacles and ridges. Two separate trails, the Fang Trail and Torpy Trail provide access to small alpine basins, with a connection over Fang Mountain. The Torpy Trail continues outside the park to Torpy Mountain.
Wilderness camping is allowed; no facilities are provided. Winter camping is also allowed, there are no facilities provided and winter campers must be experienced and be avalanche-aware.

There are spelunking opportunities. Spelunkers must be experienced as caving area is hazardous and dangerous.
Hunting is allowed in the park during the open season. Please check the BC Hunting and Trapping Regulations Synopsis for more information.
Snowmobilers access the park from the Upper Torpy Road and then through a logging block up to the south boundary. Please see snowmobile boundary map [PDF] to see where recreational snowmobiling is permitted. It is very likely that open areas in high country are also used by mountain caribou. If wildlife of any kind is encountered please do not approach, shut down your machines and give animals the chance to move away. Avalanche training is strongly recommended for all winter recreational users to recognize and avoid avalanche terrain. It is important to be prepared with emergency and first aid equipment and the knowledge how to use it as distances are great and the area is isolated. The winter climate can be severe and unforgiving with weather conditions changing quickly.
The park is located approximately 121 km east of Prince George along Highway 16, the Bowron Forest Service Road and Pass Lake Road in the McGregor Mountains. Prince George is the closest community, town or city.
There are two points to access the park; one from the west end just to the north of Pass Lake and one from the Upper Torpy Road and then through a logging block up to the south boundary.
