Okanagan Monashee camping 2


Monashee Provincial Park protects substantial stands of old growth cedar, spruce and hemlock. Lush green forests grace the valley bottoms and, in the spring, alpine meadows blossom with a colourful array of wildflowers. The park is also known for some of the oldest rock formations in western Canada. It is a wonderful adventure for both experienced, backcountry hikers and willing beginners alike.

Park Users must be prepared for extreme weather changes while camping and hiking in the sub-alpine areas of the park. Subzero temperatures are common.
 Dogs are NOT permitted due to potential conflict with red-listed Mountain Caribou.

Park amenities available

  Facilitated back country camping is available at four locations – Spectrum Lake, Little Peters Lake, Big Peters Lake and Margie Lake. Camping is also permitted in other areas of the Park without a backcountry permit. Campers must practice no-trace ethics (pack-in/pack-out principles of back-country camping).
  Spectrum Lake group campsite is found approximately 100m from the main campground, on the northeast side of the lake. Includes a large, covered picnic table shelter but no stove, six tents pads & a pit toilet. Use of these facilities is on a first-come, first-serve basis; reservations are not accepted. This area is also in a thick cedar forest with a meandering stream running through.
 Campfires permitted within provided fire-pits at Spectrum Lake Campground only.
  Day-Use / Picnic Area at Rainbow Falls.
  Pit Toilets available at the Campgrounds.
  Back-Country Camping Permits can be pre-purchased through reservation system. This does not reserve you a campsite but allows you to pre-pay and not have to carry cash.
