Created in 1975, Spatsizi Plateau Wilderness Park that includes Gladys Lake Ecological Reserve is the second largest park in British Columbia, Canada.

The park encompasses an area over 3600 square miles and can be reached off the Stewart-Cassiar Highway. It takes in three major vegetation zones: alpine tundra, spruce-willow birch, boreal white and black spruce forest. Spatsizi Plateau and Eaglenest Range form the two broad physiographic regions. The Plateau ranges from 1600 m to 2000m, while the Eaglenest Mountains are rugged, steep and the highest peak is 2500m. Both the Spatsizi and Upper Stikine provide the river drainage.

Spatsizi in the Tahltan Native language means, "Land of the Red Goat". The name relates to the mountain goats that rolled in the rich iron oxide soil, changing their normally white coats to red. Tahltan people were the only inhabitants in the Spatsizi region until 1929, when the Hyland Brothers established a trading post on the Spatsizi River. This site now serves as a base camp for Spatsizi Wilderness Vacations.
