  • Site Description:Mazur Meadows is a scenic open meadow area along Caven Ck. Grazing by cattle keeps the grass short and the meadows are open and park-like. There is a small spring adjacent to the meadow and a shallow pool which is a popular watering hole for the local wildlife. Care should be taken not to disturb the wildlife as this site provides excellent wildlife viewing opportunities. The site is named for Henry Mazur (1892-1990), who founded the meadow, and a memorial marker is located at the site. Mature Spruce and Pine forest surrounds the meadow and isolates it from the road. This site is unique in the mountainous and forested surroundings and The deciduous shrubs around the site offer a splash of color in the fall as the leaves turn a variety of colours.

  • Driving Directions:After the Bailey Bridge over Lake Koocanusa, take the second road to the left (west). Follow the Caven Creek FSR 32.5 km where the road forks. Take the right fork. Continue for approximately 2 km. where there will be a spur road on the left (lower) side of the road. The recreation site is within the first 500 m.
