Arrowstone Provincial Park is a protected wilderness area situated in the Thompson River Basin. The 6,203-hectare park encompasses a remote pristine environment and protects one of the largest undisturbed watersheds in the southern interior of British Columbia.
Surrounding forests include rare stands of old-growth Douglas fir and provide important winter habitat for migratory mule deer. The park also protects rare species of burrowing owls, falcons and western rattlesnakes. The park’s natural environment attracts nature enthusiasts and photographers.
This area has an important aboriginal basalt quarry near the junction of Arrowstone and Cache Creeks. In the southwest portion of the park, archaeological sites have uncovered artifacts confirming First Nations use of the area in the past.
Wilderness camping is permitted, but no facilities are provided. Park water is not drinkable, so visitors need to bring their own supply of potable water. Because Arrowstone is an undeveloped wilderness area with no facilities, visitors should be self-sufficient and properly equipped.
Arrowstone Provincial Park is located in the Thompson River Basin in the Thompson Okanagan region of Britsh Columbia, northeast of Cache Creek, and is accessed via Battle Creek Forest Road or via the back road from Deadman Valley to Cache Creek.
