Situated within the Southern Okanagan Highlands Ecosection, the biogeoclimatic subzone/variant represented within Boothman’s Oxbow Provincial is PPdh1 (PPdh1 Ponderosa Pine dry hot Kettle variant). A small portion of the park area incorporates the Kettle River.
Swimming, angling, kayaking, picnicking, hiking and wildlife appreciation are popular activities in the park.
