Multiple well maintained trails for humans and horses wind through the woods and mountains in Golden Ears Park. We love kayaking on Alouette Lake. It's large enough that any power boats on the lake are able to stay a fair distance away from the kayakers and canoeists. The water, shoreline and mountain vistas are spectacular.

Beautiful park so close to town yet you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere. There are some great trails, great boating and a couple really nice camping spots.

An extensive forest park within an hour of Vancouver! Trails for walking and mountain bikes. Breath the cool mountain air, relax and renew! Great for family fun and outdoor experience.

This is a great park. Whether to come for the day, or stay overnight. It's got gorgeous scenery and cool clean water. Had a solid day of kayaking on the lake and will be back again. Only reason it didn't get 5 stars was because of the difficulty in reserving a spot due to shear volume.

I love the numerous choices of nature trails of various hiking levels, from beginners to advanced. The scenery and foliage is breathtaking. My husband takes our dogs there at least once a week. They love to drink from the many little streams meandering through the hillside and tumbling from the mountains. One can also choose flat trails equally beautiful and... More

Living only ten minutes away from the park, we go visit regularly and used to camp there a few times a year. As you leave Maple Ridge city, its a windy drive through a rain forest (as most of the West Coast is) to Alouette Lake and the campgrounds, or for a day trip, picnics, water skiing, swimming, mountain biking,...

The Golden Ears Park is a beautiful rain forest in the temperate climate of British Columbia. You'll reach the park via 132th Street, and take the dedicated road into the park that takes you some 15km uphill from spring until autumn, and a bit farther during the summer season. There are many trails for hiking, horseback riding and cycling. Be... More

I camped at the Gold Creek site for one night. The camp was the only one open out of the three, at this time of the year. There were only a few campers in the site. Generally I found that every camp site that I looked at was surround by garbage. That probably led to the scary interaction with a... More

Great place to hike, bike, swim, boat, camp.... Beautiful views of the mountains and lake. Beaches are good - the teenagers liked Gold Creek. Campgrounds were well kept and Boating was really good but you have to watch out for dead heads until you get further out. The hhike to lower falls is pretty flat and can be done by... More

We went camping here this summer and the park was awesome. So much to do. Really well kept. Nice trails for some light hiking. We walked up to upper falls and it was to beautiful. we did some cycling and then went on a guided horseback trail ride with Equutrails. That was the highlight of our vacation. We took the... More
