Marl Creek Provincial Park protects remnant old growth forest and ecologically important wetland habitat along the western shores of the Columbia River. The park is located immediately adjacent to the confluence of Waitabit Creek and the Columbia River and is on one of the last remaining natural stretches of the Columbia River.
The Columbia River Wildlife Management Area is within close vicinity to the park and reinforces the park’s role in complementing and buffering this globally significant wetland.
Park Size: 169 hectares
Established Date: June 6, 1961
The park is located in the Southern Rocky Mountain Trench approximately 25 km north of Golden on the Trans-Canada Highway. There is no public access and the park is not developed for visitor use.
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.
