About This Park

Eskers Provincial Park is a day-use park located 40 km northwest of Prince George. Encompassing 3,979 hectares of gently rolling terrain and many small lakes, the park conserves a portion of the 40 km long Stuart River Eskers Complex. These unique land forms, for which the park is named, are long sinuous gravel ridges. They were created when sand and gravel were deposited in the meltwater channels of ancient glaciers that once blanketed this northern region.

Visitors can enjoy walking and hiking, canoeing, fishing, nature study and wildlife viewing. In the winter the summer hiking trails are turned into an excellent network for snow-shoeing and cross-country skiing enthusiasts. A 3 km beginners loop is located just off the Pine Marsh parking area. For an additional challenge and exercise, skiers can enjoy the 6 km trail to Kathie Lake.

All facilities at Circle Lake are built to special needs standards and are suitable for wheelchairs and the elderly. Access via the service road is available to those groups requiring vehicle access to the lake. Please contact BC Parks for admittance. Wheelchair accessible toilets are located at both Circle Lake and Pine Marsh.
