Englishman River Park protects a portion of the riparian zone along the Eagle River and the headwaters of the very small Englishman River that flows into the Eagle River just east of Three Valley Gap near Victor Lake.
Included in the 508-hectare park are stands of ancient cedar-hemlock forests, an unusual riparian area with very thick layers of moss atop boulders, critical grizzly bear habitat, and English Lake, nestled in a subalpine valley below Mount MacPherson.
Englishman River Park is located off the Trans-Canada Highway on the Eagle River east of Malakwa and Sicamous in the Shuswap region of BC, approximately 8 miles (13 kms) west of Revelstoke.
