Protected Area Size: 15 hectares
Location and Maps
The Nechako Reservoir (Ootsa and Whitesail Lakes) is the main access route to the northern region of the park but boaters must use caution when travelling on these lakes as the shoreline is a forest of drowned trees and floating debris that create hazardous boating conditions. A number of channels have been cut through the dead trees to give access to emergency landing areas. These provide shelter from the sudden and strong winds that funnel down the lakes from the Coast Mountains. See Visitor Information.
Two common access points to the northern portion of Tweedsmuir Provincial Park are Little Andrews Bay Provincial Park and Wistaria Provincial Park. See those pages for travel directions.
