Kokanee Creek Provincial Park

The Kokanee Creek Provincial Park is a 235 hectare region of woods, beach, trails, creek, and campground on the north side of the West Arm about half way between Nelson and Balfour. These few images hardly cover the richness of the Park, but it is a start.

Spring brings a freshet to Kokanee Creek and new buds to its banks. This navigable view was recorded a few hundred meters north of the road.
