A great campsite. Some great walking trails. Kids of all ages love it here. The waterfalls, the bridges cross the river twice to give you a great view of the water.

A lovely location with majestic trees and wonderful flowing water! We took a picnic lunch and walked the trails...a great interlude.

When you park you have the option of going toward the upper or lower falls. The upper falls is a short hike and very impressive. The lower falls is a long hike downhill, and thus back up. The view from the lower falls is not nearly as impressive and unless you really enjoy hiking I would skip it.

Easy parking. Short walk to falls for those less ambitious. For a simple amble for the more adventurous a longer walk is available. Down to a second smaller falls. So pretty when water is combined with the beautiful scenery of Vancouver Island. If your in the area don't miss it.

I went there with friends. It is a great place for hiking. Deep canyon, few ponds with crystal clear water and many different paths to choose from. Remember to have good boots and stay hydrated. I can recommend that place.

a few hours here towards the end of September was an afternoon of peace and quiet . Friend and I walked and photographed the falls, and the beautiful forest..a light rain only added to the atmosphere. Strongly recommend you not miss this

The sites & sounds in this park is well worth the experience. These hiking trails can be challenged by young or old, as they are nicely designed out. They follow the creek bed with some nice little water falls to see. Nice large parking lot & flush toilets are available during the high season.

Just as my title says, Peaceful, Beautiful Englishman River falls. We were last there 30 yrs ago. Remembered that it was lovely back then. However when we saw it again this time, it was even more spectacular than we remembered.
