East Kootenay region offers a treat for the nature lover. Parks such as Premier Lake and Mount Assiniboine, with the abundance of wildlife viewing opportunities, never fail to captivate visitors’ imaginations. Perhaps, stop over at sunny, family-friendly Kikomun Creek Provincial Park, the vacation haven of Moyie Lake or one of several smaller, easily accessible parks. Or, for the history buffs, the area also offers a step back into the 1890’s to the pioneer boomtown of Fort Steele Heritage Town.
This park protects a grassland ecosystem, which includes a portion of North America’s most northern Ponderosa Pine forest. The park offers swimming, hiking, cycling, boating and nature viewing opportunities.
