Ten Mile Lake Provincial Park is a provincial park in the Cariboo Land District of British Columbia, Canada, ten miles (16 km) north of the city of Quesnel[1]. The park is situated within the Fraser Plateau and Basin complex, in a transition area between the wetter Quesnel Highland to the east, and the dry Chilcotin Plateau to the west[2].

Ten Mile Lake Provincial Park is named after a Pacific Great Eastern Railway milepost placed in the area in the early 1900s[2].
