Nature and Culture

  • History: In 1987, coinciding with the opening of the Phase 2 (Merritt to Kamloops) section of the Coquihalla Highway, the Land Act Reserves (UREP) on Walloper Lake were converted to provincial Class A Park status. Prior to that time Walloper Lake had been managed as a Forest Recreation site, but the strategic location of the site led to interagency agreement that it would be ideally suited to eventually serve tourist day use travel needs on the Coquihalla Highway while retaining regional day use opportunities.

    With concerns that the close proximity of the highway would lead to overloading of the site with transient use, the new park site was closed to camping and travellers were instead directed to use the Lac le Jeune campground. Since that time, the park has been managed as a low profile day use facility, catering mostly to regional use.
  • Conservation: A small lake, surrounded by open lodgepole pine, spruce and fir forest. Partial representation of montane spruce forests and plateau lake setting of the Southern Thompson Uplands Ecosection; Park boundaries encompass much of the natural shoreline and upland around lake.
