Syringa Provincial Park is a 19 km (12 mi), (25 minute) drive from Castlegar and is 10 minutes from the Hugh Keenleyside Dam on Broadwater Road, a paved highway.
Nestled between the Monashee and Selkirk mountain ranges, the park encompasses 4,417 hectares. It is situated at the southeast end of the shores of the Lower Arrow Lake, a part of the Columbia River that has widened and deepened with the construction of the Hugh Keenleyside Dam at Castlegar.
Recreation opportunities on the Arrow Lake Reservoir have made the park a long-time popular destination and offer a comfortable base camp for the family to pursue a variety of recreational pursuits including fishing, boating and swimming.
The park protects not only provincially significant interior Douglas-fir forests but also preserves one of the few remaining examples of grassland ecosystems in the Kootenays. A variety of wildlife are at home in the park including, elk, deer and a herd of Rocky Mountain Bighorn sheep that can often be observed grazing on the many rock bluffs. Opportunities for nature appreciation occur all year making this park a destination in every season.
The campsites are a mix of sun and shade; the lanes are paved and showers are available. Boat launch. Seniors discount.
