Purden Lake Provincial Park
Nestled in the rolling mountains east of Prince George, Purden Lake Provincial Park, on the north shore of Purden Lake, is dominated by the Cariboo Mountains to the south and the McGregor range of the Rockies to the north. Densely forested upland with open areas near the lakefront provide pleasant surroundings for a shoreline stroll, swimming or angling for the lake's resident rainbow trout.
Wildlife - Purden Lake Park is home to black bear and moose year round. Visitors may observe beaver, snowshoe hares, squirrels and porcupines. Bald eagles and ruffed grouse may be seen in the park and the haunting call of the common loon often breaks the evening silence. At Purden Creek the mature forest provides a natural umbrella shading the stream channel and creating excellent habitat for the spawning and rearing rainbow trout.
Activities - There is a wide range of activities at Purden Lake Park: canoeing, cycling, fishing, hiking, hunting, swimming, boating, camping, a playground and more. The park has a boat launch, day use picnic area, and is stocked with rainbow trout.
Some facilities at the park are accessible for people with mobility challenges.
