Painted Bluffs Provincial Park is located 34 kilometres west of Kamloops— there is no road access to the park. Landbased access is not possible, due to the surrounding private property, but the park can be accessed by watercraft from Kamloops Lake.
Native copper diggings and historic mine sites are found here.
The area is noted for concentrations of California bighorn sheep.
Fishing for rainbow trout is possible (on Kamloops Lake) but keep in mind, as with everywhere else in B.C., the appropriate licence is required.
