Arrowstone Provincial Park is a provincial park in the Thompson Country of the Southern Interior of British Columbia, Canada, located to the northeast of the town of Cache Creek. The park was established by Order-in-Council in 1996 with an area of 6203 hectares. In 2000 its boundaries were slightly reduced, such that its area is now 6175 hectares.[1]

The park protects part of the area of the Arrowstone Hills, a dryland forest wilderness also notable for its collection of hoodoos. The name derives from the occurrence in the area of a type of basalt used in the making of arrowheads.[2]
