We went to the paleontology museum and found that we missed the paid tours. The staff gave us a map to find fossils on our own, which we did! Great place for fun time. The falls is a bit rambunctious for small folks this time of year. Be careful on the rocks!!

This was an amazing hike through the woods with beautiful falls and wildlife to photograph. Had a lovely picnic area where we were able to enjoy a picnic and listen to the sounds of the river flowing by.

Lovely hike on some great trails. Went here quite hungover but it was a great way to get some fresh air and see the outdoors.

If you go once each season you will see the falls change. Since the first time I took guests to the Island on this 25 minute drive north of Nanaimo I have noticed the falls change. At times you will see the logs which were thrown like match sticks crossing the upper falls. Other times the 100 foot tree trunks... More

After the cool narrow waterfall view, be sure to walk around and wade in the river. Mind the brown and green bits on the rocks: they're slippery!

Great short hike to Englishman River Falls just off the highway 4. Campsite close to river. Good walk for children.

As this park is tacked away from the busy tourists areas it was quiet and hardly saw any people in the forest. The nature was lush, green and beautiful. It was recommended to us by a kind local man in a coffee shop at Qualicum Beach.
