As the southern gateway to the Kootenay Rockies, the park is located 14.5 kilometres (9 mi) north of the Canada/US border crossing at Kingsgate or 70 kilometres (43 mi) south of Cranbrook.
A forested park on the banks of the Moyie River, this park provides an attractive rest stop or overnight campsite for travellers.
The Park is open year-round unless inaccessible due to weather conditions and the campground is open from April to October.
This provincial park offers 26 vehicle accessible campsites. For tenters, four of these campsites (sites 3, 6, 15, 24) have sand filled tent pads. The campsites are on a first-come, first-served basis – campsite reservations are not accepted. There is a telephone and information shelter at the entrance to this park.
