Wire Cache Provincial Park is a provincial park in British Columbia, Canada, located 90 km northeast of Clearwater.

In 1874 the provincial government contracted with F.J. Barnard to build a telegraph line from Cache Creek to Edmonton. A lawsuit ensued when the government cancelled the contract in 1878. A great deal of wire was abandoned in this area as a result.[2]: 297

Geography

The park is located on a series of riverbends. There is an assortment of wildlife and wetland habitat, as well as cottonwood, spruce and cedar tree ecosystems.
