Blue River Pine Provincial Park encompasses 26.4 hectares of mixed wetland and lodgepole pine, white pine and Douglas fir forests in the North Thompson Valley. The lodgepole pine in this park is unique, as this species of tree is not common to the area. Wild berries and huckleberries also grow throughout the park, making the area a very popular summer habitat for black bears.
The park is intended mainly for conservation purposes, and recreational activities are limited to nature watching and photography. There are no facilities in the park.
Blue River Pine Provincial Park is located 144 miles (230 km) north of Kamloops off Yellowhead Highway 5, near the small community of Blue River in Northern British Columbia.
