Park in BC (JF Bergeron photo)
Kamloops' provincial parks provide incredible opportunity for outdoor recreation.
Parks like Roderick Haig-Brown Provincial Park, Wells Grey Provincial Park, and Lac Du Bois Provincial Park have some of the most diverse geography in British Columbia. Hike or mountain bike Roderick Haig-Brown's 26km/16mi trail system, or witness the Adams River salmon run in October. Canoe, raft, kayak, or fish the waterways of Wells Grey Provincial Park, or hike the grasslands of Lac Du Bois.
Roderick Haig-Brown Provincial Park
Roderick Haig-Brown Provincial Park, 30 minutes east of Kamloops, is home to a section of the Adams River, where in early October thousands of Sockeye Salmon can be viewed at the beginning their spawning cycle. Every fourth year is a "dominant run" (the next upcoming in 2014), when those thousands of Sockeye become millions.
