Provincial Park comprises of two narrow strips of land along the Coquihalla
River. The ground bars and channels of the Coquihalla River provide
opportunities for spawning of Steelhead and other fish species endemic
to the Coquihalla River.
The park is
convenient as a stop-off along the Coquihalla Highway for resting,
fishing and picnicking aside the pretty Coquihalla River. The park
provides lovely fall colours due to the large number of Vine Maples
and also reveals remnants of the old Kettle Valley Railway located
60 metres above the river on the west slope.
There are no
day-use facilities in the 103-hectare park due to the past flooding
of the Coquihalla River.
River Provincial Park is located approximately 16 miles (25 km)
north of Hope on the Coquihalla Highway 5.
