BC’s Protected Wilderness
Within Wells Gray Country you will find three provincial Parks that protect vast swaths of wilderness while also providing opportunities for respectful recreation and visitor use. The three parks in this area include: Wells Gray Provincial Park, North Thompson River Provincial Park, and Caligata Lake Provincial Park. BC Parks provides in-depth information, history, and current trail conditions updates. On the BC Parks site you will also find excellent information about responsible use and any restrictions or rules in place to keep our BC Parks healthy.
BC Parks is responsible for the designation, management and conservation of a system of ecological reserves, provincial parks, conservancies, protected areas and recreation areas located throughout the province. British Columbia’s parks and protected areas system contains nationally and internationally significant natural and cultural features and outdoor experiences.
