Kentucky Alleyne Provincial Park is a provincial park in British Columbia, Canada.

History[edit]

The park was established March 5, 1981. The park is nearly surrounded by the 115-year-old Douglas Lake Ranch, Canada's largest cattle ranch.

Geography[edit]

The park is 144 hectares in size. Several kettle lakes, eskers and fluvial outwash deposits are solid evidence of the glacial activity that formed the landscape. Rolling grasslands and dry open forest with some large, mature Douglas fir and Ponderosa pine surround the sparkling turquoise waters of Kentucky Lake and Alleyne Lake.

The park is located 38 kilometres south of Merritt, British Columbia.

Conservation[edit]

Recreation[edit]

The following recreational activities are available: vehicle accessible camping, motorised boating, canoeing, kayaking, and fishing (the lakes are stocked with rainbow trout).
