About This ParkQuesnel Lake Provincial Park was established as a result of the Cariboo-Chilcotin Land-Use Plan Goal 2 (Special Feature) process.
The park consists of seven sites around Quesnel Lake. The values in this system of small, generally water access only areas, are very diverse. Some sites have valuable fish habitat, including shore spawning by sockeye and Kokanee salmon while others have creeks important for rearing and spawning. A number of the areas are thought to be important as early season foraging sites and late season access to salmon for grizzly bears. At least one area is used as an early winter area for caribou.
The park includes a number of features that are representative of landscapes around Quesnel Lake. These include sandy beaches, anchorages, waterfalls, wetlands and rivers, creeks, large tree communities and wildlife viewing opportunities in all areas.
Culturally, many of these areas may have received significant use by First Nations.
The park is located approximately 110 kilometres southeast of Quesnel.
