Location and MapsPlease note: Any maps listed are for information only – they may not represent legal boundaries and should not be used for navigation.
To reach Upper Lillooet Provincial Park, visitors drive to Pemberton and then along the Upper Lillooet forest service road on the north side of the Lillooet River, approximately 70 km to the boundary of the park. The road ends just outside the park boundary. Rough logging roads extend up Meager Creek towards the south end, but not into, the park. Helicopter access has been moderately popular mostly for accessing base camp areas in the alpine portions of the park.
