The park (11,638 hectare wilderness area) encompasses the headwaters of Kianuko Creek, which is a tributary of the Goat River, as well as a number of small alpine lakes and meadows. The watershed is largely undisturbed and contains moist cedar-hemlock and Engelmann Spruce Subalpine fir old-growth forest communities. The park protects important habitat for caribou, moose and grizzly bear and fish.
Wilderness, backcountry or walk-in camping is allowed, but no facilities are provided.
The Kianuko Provincial Park is 40 kilometres (25 mi) north of Creston.
The Park is open year-round if accessible.
