Tā Ch’ilā Provincial Park, formerly Boya Lake Provincial Park, is located northeast of Cassiar and about 75 km south of the British Columbia-Yukon border. The blue waters of this lake coupled with the sight of the Horseranch Range and the Cassiar Mountains will make you cry.
Boya Lake and broad Dease Lake offer angling for char and a variety of northern specialities: burbot and whitefish; while Dease River, which flows north from Dease Lake, through Boya Lake Provincial Park and north to the Liard River, has good grayling fishing. Access is from the town of Dease lake, from pullouts beside Hwy 37, and from Boya lake Park’s boat ramp.
For those wishing simply to paddle around a lake for a few hours while in this neck of the woods, Boya lake is the perfect spot – it’s almost impossible not to observe wildlife as you explore numerous islands and bays. Tā Ch’ilā Provincial Park also has mountain-bike trails in a spectacular setting.
Tā Ch’ilā Provincial Park provides 50 vehicle/tent campsites. Facilities include pit toilets, water and a boat launch southeast of the campground. Parts of the park are also wheelchair accessible. The park is open all year – depending on snowfall. Fees are collected from May to September, and during the offseason campers must be self-sufficient.
Tā Ch’ilā Provincial Parkis located on the Stewart-Cassiar Hwy 37 in Northern British Columbia, approximately 45 km northeast of Cassiar and 75 km south of the British Columbia / Yukon border.
