Eskers Provincial Park is a provincial park in British Columbia, Canada. The park comprises roughly 3,979 hectares (39.79 km2; 15.36 sq mi) and was created in 1987. Located west of Nukko Lake, which lies northwest of the city of Prince George, it protects an area of the 40-kilometre (25 mi) Stuart River Eskers Complex. Eskers are winding ridges of gravel formed by the glaciers which once covered the British Columbia Interior.
