Yard Creek Provincial Park
- Eagle River Nature Trails have been hit hard by winter storms. Please expect wind felled trees and blow-down debris along the entire trail. Thank you for your patience. We expect to have the trails fully cleared by early May 2014.
About This Park

the Okanagan Shuswap Land and Resource Management Plan, another 116 hectares were added to the park in 2004 under Schedule C of the Protected Areas of British Columbia Act, adding a strong conservation component to the park’s role.
Area: 175 hectares
Representation: The landscape surrounding Yard Creek Park is part
of the Interior wetbelt characterized by cedar and hemlock forest and lush undergrowth.
The park contains a variety of bird species including American dippers. These fascinating little birds dive into the icy waters
of the creek and “fly” along under the water in search of water insects. Watch for them on the rocks along the creek.
The Yard Creek campground is managed by the Yard Creek Park Caretaker (Columbia Shuswap Regional District).
