Little Huson Cave Regional Park

Little Huson Cave Regional Park is located in Nimpkish Valley, south of Nimpkish Lake and Nimpkish Lake Provincial Park. It features 15 caves, including Little Huson Caves, with several spectacular cave formations by Huson Lake, unique rock bridges, and rock arches. This park contains fifteen well-known caves, but it had been developed principally because of the sedimentary rock formations unique to the island.
A platform overlooks lots of flowing water, natural bridges and deep pools filled with crystal-clear green water from Huson Lake. It would be best if you stood back to take in the scale of the rock arch standing above fascinating pools. There are plenty of excellent karst features to see and explore, and the main cave and its rivers are gorgeous and unbelievable.
