Juniper Beach Provincial Park

Juniper Beach Provincial Park, British Columbia was established as a Provincial Park in 1989. And is located on the N side of Thompson River between Kamloops Lake and Ashcroft.

The park protects a representative desert landscape which contains sagebrush, prickly pear cactus and of course, juniper. Part of the landscape includes deep post-glacial deposits and large scale erosion features. It is a convenient overnight camping spot for travellers on Hwy #1 and provides access to the Thompson River. Both CNR and CPR railway tracks run by the park and provide an attraction to train-buffs.
