A roadside park with a natural setting and sub-alpine lake, Nancy Greene Provincial Park is a welcoming site for weary travellers. Tucked in the Monashee Mountains it is a popular overnight stop for tourists and also provides day use opportunities for local residents wishing to escape the summer heat of the valley. It is the perfect place to enjoy fishing, picnicking, walking, swimming, boating and in winter nordic skiing. The special feature in the park is the sub alpine lake.
The park is strategically located at the intersection of highway 3B and 3, a short drive from two major communities. You are encouraged to stay an extra night and during the day explore the local history. Visit the Rossland Mining Museum or in Castlegar the Doukhobor Village Museum.
Established Date: January 25, 1972
Park Size: 203 hectares
The park has 10 parking lot style sites. The tables, on either side of the paved parking area are offset from their designated parking stalls. The large parking lot allows open parking and can accommodate extra vehicles or larger rigs. There is one walk-in tent site located just above the beach area. All sites are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Campsite reservations are not accepted. Fees are cash only and are self-registration.
While campfires are allowed and campfire rings are provided at each campsite, we encourage visitors to conserve wood and protect the environment by minimizing the use of fire and using campstoves instead. Firewood can be purchased in the park or you may bring your own wood. Fees for firewood are set locally and may vary from park to park. Limited burning hours or campfire bans may be implemented. To preserve vegetation and ground cover, please don’t gather firewood from the area around your campsite or elsewhere in the park (this is a ticketable offence under the Park Act ). Dead wood is an important habitat element for many plants and animals and it adds organic matter to the soil.
A sandy 100 metre beach provides swimming opportunities, however there is no roped off swimming area. Due to the elevation of the park the water is considered cool.
There are no lifeguards on duty at provincial parks.
