Great Glacier Provincial Park is a provincial park in British Columbia, Canada, created to protect the Great Glacier, one of the major sights along the lower Stikine River. The park lies on the river's west (right) bank inland from the British Columbia-Alaska boundary, which lies a few miles downstream. Immediately across the river from the Great Glacier and its park is Choquette Hot Springs Provincial Park, which protects the Stikine River Hot Springs. Both parks are in the traditional territory of the Tahltan people. and lie about 120 km southwest of the Tahltan community of Telegraph Creek, which lies at the upper, opposite, end of the Grand Canyon of the Stikine from the area of the Great Glacier.
