Mud Lake Delta Provincial Park protects 500 hectares of natural floodplains, wetlands, beaver ponds, small oxbow lakes and other delta formations. Surrounding slopes are covered with mixed forests of old-growth cedar, hemlock and spruce, while cottonwoods dot the floodplains.
The park is important habitat for moose, as well as grizzly in the spring. The several waterways provide spawning grounds for bull trout and coho salmon. Nature study, wildlife viewing, fishing and hunting are popular activities for the area.
No facilities are provided at this park.
