Tā Ch’ilā Park offers scenic camping and a wide variety of water recreation opportunities with Boya Lake’s superb water clarity and colour, beckoning the traveler to explore its many islands and bays.
Tā Ch’ilā is situated on the Liard Plain, an area carved out by glaciers 20,000 years ago. The area is characterized by long ridges, or eskers, and elongated hills, or drumlins.
Boya Lake is also one of the few lakes in the north that is warm enough for swimming. The park offers two short hiking trails, a mountain bike trail and limitless bays and islands to discover by canoe or motor boat.
The lake is noted for its colour and clarity. The bottom is composed of marl, a mixture of silt and shell fragments. The crystal clear waters and aquamarine lake colour are a result of the light reflecting from the marl bottom.
