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 in the park include hiking, rock climbing, and camping. There are views from the park across Howe Sound and Mount Garibaldi to the north. The park was recently[when?] upgraded as part of the Sea to Sky Highway Improvement Project, which gave it a new signature pedestrian bridge with an unusual form that uses two blue, splayed arches and a curved concrete deck.

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