The park was established 1995. Woss Lake Provincial Park is within the traditional territory of the Namgis First Nation. The park contains a portion of a First Nations traditional cross-island trade route known as the Grease Trail, which made its way over the Tahsis divide.
The park is 66.34 km². The park landscape includes the southern portion of Woss Lake, as well as very steep forested slopes above the lake and the permanent snowfields and north facing slopes of Rugged Mountain, part of the Haihte Range.
Woss Lake Provincial Park is a very steep, forested, seldom visited wilderness area. The park contains Roosevelt elk populations, a salmon fishery and potentially, habitat for the endangered Vancouver Island marmot. The park also contains a nameless, intact secondary watershed of 16 km² that drains into the head of Woss Lake. This unnamed drainage contains valuable Chinook salmon and steelhead spawning habitat and a sensitive delta area with a variety of rare plant species.
There are no recreation facilities in Woss Lake Provincial Park, but visitors with a boat, canoe or kayak can enjoy various activities ranging from backcountry hiking, skiing and mountaineering to camping, fishing, First Nations and nature appreciation and hunting.
