Nicolum River Provincial Park, formerly Nicolum Provincial Park, is a provincial park in British Columbia, Canada, located at the confluence of the Nicolum and Coquihalla Rivers near the town of Hope. The park is a Class A, category 6 Provincial Park.
The 24-hectare Nicolum River Provincial Park was established in 1956 as a rest stop along Highway 3, and was developed into a campground with 9 campsites. Vehicular access to the provincial park and campground was ended in the 2000s. The park is still open to the public, but camping is forbidden. The day use parking lot has been closed.
BC Parks no longer maintains Nicolum River Provincial Park, and therefore no facilities are open for public use at the park. All washrooms are closed. Parking is available outside the main gate along Highway 3.
