Detailed Description:

Nancy Greene Provincial Park is an alpine recreation destination and a small rest stop type campground situated in the Monashee Mountains located north of the community of Rossland, BC in the West Kootenay region of British Columbia, Canada. The 203 hectare park was established in 1972 and is named after Nancy Greene who is a celebrated Olympic skier for Canada.

The main features in the park are the alpine lake, sandy beach and the hiking trail. The 32 hectare lake, the 100 metre sandy beach and the 5 kilometre hiking trail attract many to the park during the summer who enjoy fishing, canoeing, wind surfing, picnicking, hiking, swimming and boating. During the winter the provincial park attracts people who enjoy xc skiing, ice fishing and ice skating.

The sub alpine lake is a fishing destination for those seeking to hook into some rainbow and cutthroat trout. No power boats are permitted on the lake. Fishing is done from a canoe, row boat, belly boat or from shore. There is a car top boat launch available in the park.

The hiking trail in the Nancy Greene Provincial Park is a well maintained easy-grade walking path exploring the shores of the lake, a wetland marsh and a surrounding forest of pine, spruce, fir and larch trees. Some of the wildlife viewed in the park include squirrels, chipmunks, porcupines, moose, deer and bear.

There is a day use area and campground located in the park. The day use area fronts a sandy beach and includes some picnic tables, a picnic shelter, adventure playground, fire pits and pit toilets.

The campground is small and operates on a first come - first serve basis. Located at an intersection of two highways, the campground is used mainly by campers and RVs. Many who stop in the park to stay overnight are just passing through. Although the scenery merits multiple nights.
