Herald Provincial Park - my personal favourite

Herald Provincial Park - my personal favourite

Discover the charm of Herald Provincial Park nestled along the scenic shores of Shuswap Lake in Salmon Arm. A highly sought-after destination, the park experiences high demand, especially during the bustling months of July and August. It's advisable to secure reservations well in advance during this period. If reservations are unavailable, consider joining the waiting list for the limited first-come, first-served sites released daily at noon.

The campsites at Herald Park offer a diverse setting, with options available both lakeside and nestled in the refreshing forested areas. Immerse yourself in a day filled with swimming, fishing, and bird-watching—the perfect retreat. For picnickers seeking respite from Highway 1, the short drive to the park is well worthwhile. Situated on the grounds of an old homestead, the park exudes a nostalgic ambiance, akin to visiting your grandparents.

Herald Provincial Park also beckons hikers with captivating trails, showcasing two distinct geographical units—the upland and flat delta—creating an enticing hiking terrain. Explore the rich history of the area, including Native Indian pithouse depressions (kekuli) west of the creek and ancient Native cache pits. To reach this haven, simply take Highway 1 east of Tappen for approximately 12 kilometers.
