The following is a list of all British Columbia land now managed by BC Parks (a branch of the British Columbia Ministry of Environment). Any parks that are closed are not listed. Provincial Parks cover approximately 12% of the land area of BC.

There were a number of provincial parks, protected areas and ecological reserves in the Gulf Islands that were recently transferred to the national park system, specifically the Gulf Islands National Park Reserve. For other national parks in British Columbia, and for civic, municipal and regional parks, see List of protected areas in British Columbia.

Ecological Reserves[edit]

Ecological reserves are not created for outdoor recreation. Most ecological reserves, however, are open to the public for non-destructive pursuits like hiking, nature observation and photography. Consumptive activities like hunting, freshwater fishing, camping, livestock grazing, removal of materials, plants or animals are prohibited by regulation in ecological reserves. Motorized vehicles are not allowed.

Recreation areas[edit]

Recreation areas is land set aside for recreational use by the public. It is also land that is being evaluated by BC Parks from both a protected area value and an economic opportunity perspective to determine whether the area should be "upgraded" to full protected area status or returned to integrated resource management lands.
