Shuswap Lake Marine Provincial Park; Anstey Hunakwa Provincial Park - Hunakwa Lake Trail

Anstey Hunakwa Provincial Park, British Columbia is at the N end Anstey Arm of the Shuswap Lake. And is part of the Shuswap Marine [Provincial Park which] is comprised of 26 sites located around the perimeter of Shuswap Lake.

"Anstey-Hunakwa Protected Area includes a variety of landscapes at the north end of Shuswap Lake. It extends from the shore of the lake to alpine environments on mountain tops. There are extensive areas of old-growth forest in the Engelmann, Spruce-Subalpine Fir and Interior Cedar-Hemlock zones. Included in the park are two lakes that cannot be reached by road (a rarity in the Shuswap area) - Hunakwa Lake and Wright Lake. The north end of Anstey Arm is more accessible (but only by boat), and is valued for its recreational opportunities (sandy beaches) and salmon habitat.

The main access to the park is by boat to the north end of Anstey Arm on Shuswap Lake. There is a 3 km trail from the north end of Anstey Arm to the south end of Hunakwa Lake."

"For my part, I may say that before I commenced photography I did not see half the beauties in nature that I do now, and the glory and power of a precious landscape has often passed before me and left but a feeble impression on my untutored mind; but it will never be so again." ~Samuel Bourne
