Welcome to the new BC Parks website

Porcupine Meadows Park


Limited, primitive trails without signs. Maps, compass and knowledge of the area are essential. For your own safety and the preservation of the park, obey posted signs and keep to designated trails. Shortcutting trails destroys plant life and soil structure.
Wildlife viewing
There are wildlife viewing opportunities in this park. Moose and sandhill cranes are found in the park.
Pets on leash
Pets/domestic animals must be on a leash at all times and are not allowed in beach areas or park buildings. You are responsible for their behaviour and must dispose of their excrement. Backcountry areas are not suitable for dogs or other pets due to wildlife issues and the potential for problems with bears.
Horseback riding
Horseback riding on designated trails.

Hunting is permitted only during lawful game hunting season. Check with Hunting and Trapping Synopsis for regulations.

Winter recreation
Snowshoeing is permitted in this park; however, there are no maintained trails. For snowmobilers, the Kamloops Snowmobile Association maintains trails into the area and an old forestry lookout tower serves as a shelter for emergency use.

Snowmobiling is allowed between December 15th and April 15th. In some years the opening date may be later to allow for a deeper snowpack. Please obey any closure signage.
