Of historical significance, Kleanza means “gold” in the Gitxsan language and influenced the early history of the park site as it was the focus of gold seekers at the turn of the last century. There’s a trail that follows the creek where once there were placer mining works further up the valley. This park has 32 vehicle/tent sites.
