DescriptionA roadside park with a natural setting and sub-alpine lake, Nancy Greene Provincial Park is a welcoming site for weary travellers. Tucked in the Monashee Mountains it is a popular overnight stop for tourists and also provides day use opportunities for local residents wishing to escape the summer heat of the valley.
The park is strategically located at the intersection of highway 3B and 3, a short drive from Castlegar and Rossland / Trail. It is the perfect place to enjoy fishing, picnicking, walking, swimming, boating and in winter nordic skiing. The special feature in the park is the sub alpine lake.
Open from mid-May to mid-September the park offers campsites on a first-come, first-served basis. Campsite reservations are not accepted. Visitors can select any site and staff will come to collect fees.
An easy, wide, hard packed 5 km loop trail gently meanders around Nancy Greene lake. You can access the trail from either side of the beach. The trail follows the shoreline, offers lake views and will lead you through a marsh area as well as a mixed forest of pine, spruce, fir and larch. Allow yourself 45 minutes to an hour to complete this relaxing hike. For your own safety and the preservation of the park, obey posted signs and keep to designated trails. Shortcutting trails destroys plant life and soil structure.
The park has 10 parking lot style sites. The tables, on either side of the paved parking area are offset from their designated parking stalls. The large parking lot allows open parking and can accommodate extra vehicles or larger rigs. There are no tent sites or tent pads. Not all the tables are shaded but the elevation does help to keep it cool during the day.
