Hamber Provincial Park is a provincial park in British Columbia, Canada, located at the border with Alberta, surrounded on three sides by the Jasper National Park.
The park was named in honour of Eric W. Hamber, Lieutenant-Governor of British Columbia from 1936 to 1941.
This park was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984, together with the other national and provincial parks that form the Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks, for the mountain landscapes containing mountain peaks, glaciers, lakes, waterfalls, canyons and limestone caves as well as fossils found here.
Vegetation around Fortress Lake is replete with spruce and balsam, consisting of a heavy understory of false azalea and rhododendron.
Back country camping and hiking. Fishing for brook trout in Fortress Lake. Cross country skiing and snowshoeing in the winter. There are climbing opportunities as well.
As a remote wilderness area, the only access is via hike-in or ski-in. Park at the Sunwapta Falls parking lot in Jasper National Park. It is a 22 kilometre hike over trails to Fortress Lake. The closest communities to the park are Valemount, British Columbia and Jasper, Alberta.
