A few minutes from the Alaska Highway, Muncho Lake Park has the serenity and seclusion expected in this area of the north. Some of the most stunning natural landscapes can be viewed at this park. Spectacular mountains, bountiful wildlife and brilliantly colored wildflowers are just a few of the wonders to discover here.
In the southern portion of the park, you will see the very impressive Folded Mountain towering above the road. Tectonic deformations have bent the limestone giving these mountains their unique appearance. Further along the highway you will have the opportunity to travel across the alluvial fans. Keep an eye open for moose which frequent the many swamps within the park.
Twelve kilometres of jade-colored water will tell you that you have reached Muncho Lake. You have the choice of camping at Strawberry Flats campground or at MacDonald campground, 11 km further north. The lake’s cold, deep waters are tinted green by minerals and provide a home to lake trout, arctic grayling, bull trout and whitefish. Toss out a line and try your luck.
There is a good chance you will see Stone sheep along the highway. The natural beauty of Muncho Lake Park is sure to be the highlight of your northern adventure.
