Nickel Plate Provincial Park is a provincial park in British Columbia, Canada.[2] Formerly known as Clearwater Park,[3] it is located in the Similkameen District at the northeast corner of Nickel Plate Lake.[4] The park is also 29km northeast of Hedley near the Apex Ski Resort.[5]

Campers can be found on the lake's sandy beaches and are expected to practice "no trace" camping. Boat access to the lake is available by a rough gravel boat launch at the north end of the dam. In addition, the Nickel Plate Nordic Centre in Nickel Plate Provincial Park features 39km of groomed and track-set trails.[5]

The park has recreational activities including hiking, fishing, paddling, canoeing and kayaking as well as winter recreation.
