Mara Provincial Park is a day-use provincial park in British Columbia, Canada, located on Mara Lake south of Sicamous.[1] The park is open with services from May 1 to September 27. The gate is locked open during the off season.[2]

Mara Provincial Park is dedicated to intensive recreation, providing opportunities for public recreation access and use of Mara Lake, with emphasis on swimming, picnicking and boat launching. Mara Provincial Park provides good sandy beaches and the only major public access and boat launch on Mara Lake.

There is fish-spawning at the mouths of two creeks. One kekuli pit can be found in the park, but this feature is only considered as locally significant.[3]
