Muncho Lake, BC, Canada
Only a few minutes from the Alaska Highway that passes through the park is the serenity and seclusion expected in this area of the north. Some of the most outstanding views of natural beauty anywhere can be experienced at this park. Spectacular folded mountains, bountiful wildlife, brilliantly-colored wildflowers are just a few of the wonders to discover here. In the southern portion of the park, you will see the very impressive geological formations of Folded Mountain towering above the road. Tectonic deformations have folded the limestone giving these mountains their unique appearance. Further along the highway you will have the opportunity to travel across the alluvial fans. Caution should be used if investigating these wonders of nature. Rain high up in the mountains may cause flooding of these areas with little or no warning. Keep an eye open for moose which frequent the many swamps within the park.
Twelve kilometres of jade-colored water will tell you that you have reached Muncho Lake. You have the choice of camping at Strawberry Flats campground or at MacDonald campground, 11 km further north. Recreationists ahoy! Go on a boat tour and learn about the history of the lake – Muncho Lake Tours operates daily trips. The lake’s cold, deep waters, tinted green by minerals, are home to lake trout, Arctic grayling, bull trout and whitefish. Visit Canada. Epic Canada Route © Monika Newbound
