The park has very nice trails. All are a very easy walk, wide and flat trails. The camp sites look nice and everyone I have known to camp there have enjoyed it. Very close to Parksville. Fee for camping but no fee to park and go for a walk

This beach stretches for several kms, has shallow water and is therefore great for families with small children. At low tide, It is also great for beachcombers.

We have visited this park every year for the past 10 years. Simply a beautiful park that was great for families. The only downside is the past few years the park is getting more and more ants....so many that we (group of 5 families) are moving our annual camping trip to another park. There were huge ant nests between each... More

Even on a cold and blustery February long weekend the beach was beautiful. We bundled the kids up and they dug for shells buried under the snow! The views of the gulf islands are amazing. plan to return in the summer for a camping trip.

This is a great place to walk when the tide is out and search for shells or watch the birds play. You can get lost in time on this 5K long sandy beach.

My wife and I wandered the park and beach for a few hours. It is very picturesque with easy to walk trails. The beach connects to all the resorts so you can walk to and from your place of stay easily.

Great place for a walk and enjoy the view. There is also a nice playground for the little ones. Nice space for dogs to run free.

Parksville and Qualicum are both quaint little towns with a good concentration on city landscaping. Rathtrevor Beach is a large expanse if sand. One of the yearly attractions for naturalists in the annual migration of the Brant geese. See the internet for details
