Coquihalla River Provincial Park
About This Park
This park encompasses 100 hectares along two narrow strips of land along the Coquihalla River. The ground bars and channels of the Coquihalla provide opportunities for spawning of Steelhead and other endemic fish species to the Coquihalla River.
The general public utilizes the area for a stop-off along the Coquihalla Highway for resting, fishing and viewing in a river environment.The park provides lovely fall colours due to the large number of Vine Maples and also reveals remnants of the old Kettle Valley Railway located 60 metres above the river on the west slope.
There are no BC Parks day-use facilities in this park due to the past flooding events of the Coquihalla River.
Park Size: 103 hectares
This Park is located approximately 25 km north of Hope on highway 5.
