The park is situated in the Selkirk Mountains between Slocan Lake and Kootenay Lake at the south end and between Arrow Lakes and Duncan Lake at the north end. It covers almost 80,000 hectares and contains a mix of low, mid and high-elevation forests. It is used for year-round for such activities as hiking, mountaineering, camping, hunting, fishing, wildlife viewing, skiing and snowmobiling.
The park has an important mining and logging history, including a historic townsite and railway station at the south end of Trout Lake.
This is just one of hundreds of British Columbia Provincial Parks.
