      Gladstone Provincial Park

      Gladstone Provincial Park is, perhaps, most well known for the vehicle accessible Texas Creek campground which was added to the park area in 1995 and provides excellent camping, picnicking and a safe swimming area.

      However, the park also has significant wilderness value. It provides a diversity of habitats in the Selkirk Foothills ecosection of the province that is found nowhere else. These include Kokanee spawning areas, winter range for deer and elk, and of particular importance, low elevation habitats and old growth cedar and hemlock forests.

      There are several short trails that lead from the campground to the lake. Christina Lake has a reputation as one of the warmest and clearest lakes in Canada. There are several pocket beaches that provide great opportunities for privacy and quiet moments. The Monashee Mountains surround the lake and it is a perfect backdrop for a variety of water-oriented recreational activities. Fishing for Kokanee, rainbow trout and small-mouth bass is popular. The protection of spawning areas in the park such as Sandner Creek is extremely important.

      Two areas of the park have been zoned as Special Features: the pictographs on the east shore of Christina Lake and the Troy/Sandner Creek area at the north end of Christina Lake from 100 metres off-shore to one kilometre inland to protect the provincially significant spawning habitat for kokanee and rainbow trout and the area’s importance for grizzly and black bear habitat during the fish spawn.

      Park Size: 39,387 ha

      Stay Safe:

      Swimmer’s Itch – Symptoms will be an irritating rash and persistent itch. Calamine lotion is an effective treatment. Poison Ivy – A low plant with three glossy, bright green leaves and white berries. Wear shoes when hiking, especially in underbrush. Calamine lotion is an effective treatment.
