Syringa Provincial Park

 

Syringa Provincial Park, located on southwest shore of the Lower Arrow Lake near Castlegar, is popular with local families and visitors for its excellent water-based recreation opportunities. Swimming can be enjoyed in the Lower Arrow Lake Reservoir from the park’s three beaches. Boating, canoeing, kayaking, waterskiing, and windsurfing are all possible on the lake. Fishing for kokanee, rainbow, and bull trout is also a popular pastime. The 4-km long Yellow Pine Nature trail ascends the terraced hillside above the campground and leads to several viewpoints with striking vistas of the Lower Arrow Lake against a backdrop of Monashee Mountains. The nearby town of Castlegar has several historical / cultural attractions, including the Doukhobor Heritage Village and Zuckerberg Island Heritage Park.
