This park was identified for protection in the Cariboo-Chilcotin Land-Use Plan of 1995. Under the plan, uses that were permitted before 1995 will continue in the park: livestock grazing, hunting, trapping and guiding.
The park is in the traditional territory of the Ts’ilhqot’in (Chilcotin) First Nation. Cultural heritage sites have not yet been identified in this park. If you find any such sites, note that it is an offence to disturb them or remove anything.
The area encompasses abundant wetlands and small lake habitats. Due to the difficult access to the area, it has remained a wilderness. The park’s ecosystems are sub boreal pine and spruce in the lower elevations, with some Engelmann spruce and subalpine fir.
Moose enjoy the parks low-elevation wetlands during the winter, where the snow pack is lower. Other animals to be found in the park include black and grizzly bear, wolf, cougar, mule deer, and small furbearers such as martin, beaver, muskrat and hare. Waterfowl populate the creeks and wetlands during the summer.
