Denison-Bonneau Provincial Park
About This ParkDenison-Bonneau Park is located approximately 60 kilometres east of Vernon on a sub-alpine plateau above the Creighton Valley within the North Okanagan Regional District.
Park Size: 376 hectares
As a small backcountry park, Denison-Bonneau Park provides a unique opportunityfor recreationalists to enjoy pristine sub-alpine lakes and vestiges of remaining old-growth forests in the Okanagan Highlands. Anglers are awarded with excellent fishing opportunities in both Denison Lake and Bonneau Lake, whereas day use hikers and self-sufficient backcountry campers can explore the park’s unique forested environment, geological features, and viewscapes.
The importance of Denison-Bonneau Park to First Nations has been further researched and the park continues to provide an important association to food, social and ceremonial harvesting activities of First Nations as well as preserving other important spiritual and cultural values.
Owing to the industrial land uses that have historically occurred outside of the park, such as logging and road building, the park assists greatly in providing habitat connectivity and refuge, especially in an era of climate change.
Primary access is a 2 kilometre hiking trail off of the Bonneau Lake Forest Service Road.
