Bear Creek Provincial Park

Bear Creek Provincial Park is situated in the Central Okanagan Basin on the west side of Okanagan Lake, British Columbia.

Origin Notes and History:
The watercourse here was called Bear River in 1833 by David Douglas, of fir tree fame (British Columbia Historical Quarterly 4:242); labelled "Rivera la Ours" (Bear River) on Anderson's 1867 map; labelled "Bear River" on Trutch's 1871 map. The official name is Lambly Creek, although it is still commonly called Bear Creek. Source: BC place name cards, or correspondence to/from BC's Chief Geographer or BC Geographical Names Office
