The park is a very long, narrow strip that roughly follows the Upper Adams River and protects the riparian area on both sides of the river, from the north end of Adams Lake to a point north of Tum Tum Lake. 

Three routes, all gravel logging roads, access this area: 

  • from Highway 5 south of Barriere, via Agate Bay Road and along the west side and northern end of Adams Lake (80 km).
  • from Trans Canada Highway 1 at Squilax to Adams Lake roads (95 km).
  • from Highway 5 at Vavenby, via logging roads (30 km). 

Use caution when traveling on logging roads. This is an active logging area. 
The nearest communities are Kamloops, Clearwater, Barriere, Vavenby and Little Fort. The closest public telephone is at Vavenby Store, approximately 30 km away.
