About This Park

Upper Lillooet Provincial Park

Upper Lillooet Provincial Park was established on July 28, 1997, and is composed of valley bottom old-growth forests, wetland habitat, high alpine ridges and glaciers.

This is a remote backcountry area with no developed trails or any other facilities, so access is limited.

This park is a great destination for those seeking to experience the remote wilderness through backcountry hiking and wilderness camping.

Park Size: 19,996 hectares

Location and Maps

The park is located approximately 150 km northwest of Vancouver or 60 km northwest of Pemberton at the headwaters of the Lillooet River.

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 popula,r mostly for accessing base camp areas in the alpine portions of the park.
