Premier Listings for Cummins Lakes Provincial Park

The Clemenceau Icefield feeds the silty waters of the Cummins Lakes Provincial Park, a wilderness area of Rocky Mountain peaks, glaciers, and three spectacular waterfalls. This 21,728-hectare park encompasses coniferous forests, meadows and marshes, which provides important habitat for grizzly bears, caribou and mountain goats. The area is famous for its extreme wilderness recreational activities, such as mountaineering, ski-touring and backpacking expeditions.

The remote park is located at the head of the Cummins River, which drains southwest into the Kinbasket Reservoir. There is helicopter access to the Alpine Club of Canada climbing hut. There is also limited access by ski touring across the Clemenceau Ice Fields from Jasper National Park.

The Rockies are neither the highest nor the oldest of British Columbia’s 40 mountain ranges, but they certainly make an indelible impression upon travellers.

Cummins Lakes Provincial Park is located 57 miles (90 km) due east of Blue River in the North Thompson Valley (as the crow flies), near Jasper National Park on the British Columbia border with Alberta. This remote park is usually accessed by helicopter as theree is no road access.
