This park is located at the summit of the highest all weather highway pass in BC and one of the highest paved highways in Canada! Enjoy the subalpine forest from the luxury of your car or go for a short walk around Bridal Lake. The park has a key role in protecting habitat for internationally endangered mountain caribou. A remnant herd of approximately 40 individuals migrate back and forth across the international border and is heavily dependent on the park to facilitate this movement. In addition, the park provides important habitat for the vulnerable Southern Selkirk population of grizzly bear. Dogs are not permitted in Stagleap Provincial Park during the winter months (Nov. 1 April 30). Please leave your dog at home during this time.

Fine overnight parking which is not allowed during Dec-Apr. Do not stay on the other side of the lake as all the noisy passing trucks stop there for a break check. Also worth going up the mountain (approx. 3km) for some great views of the vast area.
