This is a great place to spend the day, but keep in mind "if you don't bring it, you won't have it". There are literally almost NO amenities. Bring a backpack with snacks, drinks, medical kit, compass, toilet paper, etc. Lots of old growth trees here in the woods, plus some spots are "right on the water" where you can... More

The park is vast. Locals tend to use the East side of the park to take dogs for a walk. The main road forward, is a more Tourist approach. You will see big Douglas Firs, and lots of nature. By the "Camping Cabins" near the Light house, you might want to take the trail between them to the east, to... More

It's a super natural park rather than a very historical place. They do have a little museum-like room near the lighthouse but there's absolutely no way to get close to the beacon. In the little display, you'll get to know why Canadians have built lots of military facilities in this area -- to defend the possible Japanese attack in WWII.... More

It doesn't take long to get down to the lighthouse area where you can scramble all over many exposed rock areas to find the best viewpoint. On a nice day this is an amazing place for a picnic with your significant other - can't go wrong here watching the boats go by and sitting in the sunshine and salt air!

Tucked away off the beaten path, this park is perfect for hikers of any ability There are miles of trails to tackle, or just follow the service road for an easy walk to the lighthouse.

My boyfriend took me here to see the view and it was so beautiful . . . a very romantic spot for a picnic or whatever. Hard to believe it is so close to the downtown area. Well worth a visit for any out of towners or even locals.

A great place to take a hike or just a quiet wander. The views when you get to the clearings are absolutely gorgeous. Different hikes for different levels of fitness. Great place to take your dog.
