Stawamus Chief Provincial Park is a provincial park in British Columbia, Canada, established in 1997. It encompasses both the eponymous Stawamus Chief and the Stawamus Squaw granite domes.

Activities includes hiking, rock climbing, camping, and scenic views across Howe Sound and Mount Garibaldi to the north. The park was recently upgraded as part of the Sea to Sky Highway Improvement Project, which gave it a new signature pedestrian bridge with a striking form that uses two blue, splayed arches and a curved concrete deck.

It is located just to the south of the town of Squamish, on the Sea to Sky Highway at the top NE corner of the Howe Sound.
