About This Park
This park is now user maintained. Park users are requested to practice no trace camping and remove their garbage. This inland marine park lies at the foot of the eastern slopes of the Selkirk Mountains Nelson Range. Located 36 km south of Balfour on the west shore of the Kootney Lake, this park provides protected moorage in both the north and south bays making it easy to get out of the wind. Its secluded sand beaches and picnic area make this park a scenic place for a relaxing visit. There are two sheltered coves that provide good boat moorage and protection from the prevailing winds which blow from the south and north. The north cove has a 50 meter long sandy beach which provides excellent swimming and an area where boats can land. Camping on the shore is limited to three tenting sites.
NOTE: This park is only accessible by boat.
Park Size: 24 hectares

- Wildlife - Park users should always be aware of bears and other wildlife in our park environment. Never feed or approach bears or other wildlifeFor more information on bear safety, click here.
- Wood ticks are most prevalent between March and June. These parasites live in tall grass and low shrubs, and seek out warm-blooded hosts. As potential carriers of disease, they should be avoided. Protect your legs by wearing gaiters, or pants tucked into socks. After any outdoor activities, thoroughly examine yourself, children and pets. If you find a tick embedded in your skin, the best way to remove it is by grasping and pulling it, gently, straight up and out with a small pair of tweezers, and disinfecting the site with rubbing alcohol. You may wish to save the tick in a small plastic or glass container for later inspection by your doctor especially if a fever develops, or the area around the bite appears to be infected.
