The 238-hectare Niskonlith Lake Provincial Park is situated at the northern tip of Niskonlith Lake. The park offers camping in a lushly forested environment, sheltered by towering cottonwoods. Spring wildflowers bloom in extraordinary profusion, as birds make their northern migration through this area of the Shuswap Highlands.
As well known as the steelhead are the Kamloops trout. Kamloops trout are a unique strain of trout that put on a eye-popping, acrobatic performance for fly-fishers skilled enough to hook one. These wild rainbow trout, native to central and south-central Interior regions of the province, are the prize in Niskonlith Provincial park.
