About This Park

Green Lake in Green Lake Provincial Park is wide and shallow, fed by two small creeks, lake-bottom springs, and upland runoff. Since its outlet only functions in high-water periods, there’s lots of time for algae and other micro-organisms to form: hence the lake’s greenish hue and its name.

Green Lake is one of the larger bodies of water in the southern portion of the Cariboo. The lake is about 9 miles (14 km) long, averaging 1.5 km in width, with an irregular shoreline of approximately 36 miles (57 km).
