All reviews provincial park swimming hole easy hike short hike the loop hiking trails beautiful hike flush toilets great walk great trails cool off big trees great camping off the highway few hours picnic tables forest
After some heavy rain the river was flowing and the falls were amazing. No one else there, just me and the dog. I only did the Upper Fall due to time constraints....but I'm sure a few hours could be well spent here
This attraction is a short drive for those in the Parksville - Qualicum Beach area. It appears GPS is a little iffy and the provincial park road signs are inconsistent (some stolen?) so you may be best served with a good map for one of...More
Firstly tip of the day, your Sat Nav GPS will tell you you’ve arrived about a mile or so before the waterfall car park, no need to turn left as we did heading through the forest towards the lower falls and wondering where the hell...More
We reserved our site and got ready for a relaxing stay. However, the park manager did nothing to address a group of unruly kids that the parents let run free. Screaming and riding their bikes from 7:00am and one bike had a dynocharger on it...More
Was drizzling a bit when we were there, but it did not stop us from enjoying the area. The falls are nice, but even better are the teees, the fabulous rocks and cliffs, and the general area. If you are debating...."What falls should we see...More
Had a lovely time camping here this weekend. The campsite was well maintained and very quiet. The park staff were very much on top of any issues that arose - and were also very friendly. The campsite had a trail that led to the waterfalls...More
The falls are nice, the woods are serene and the air is clean. Its an easy 20 - 30 minute walk from the upper to lower falls, looping back to the parking lot. We spent about an hour here. Stopping, taking pictures and generally enjoying...More

Are these times how long it takes to get there or how long you plan on staying at each location?
Vancouver Island Campground Suggestions? (8 Replies)
Hi, So a few of my friends and I are thinking of going camping for three days (two nights) out on Vancouver Island. There are 5 of us all together and we are looking for something casual, hopefully no more than 5 hours from Vancouver, preferably on the water (lake or ocean), with some nice intermediate hikes. We were hoping for something a bit more secluded with less of a family vibe. If anyone has any suggestions that would be amazing! I've been doing a bit of research and so far the...More

When are you planning on camping? Camping on the island is very popular especially on weekends so I'd recommend reserving a campsite. You can only reserve three months in advance. For example, if you are coming for July 20th or earlier, go book now. I haven't been to Sproat Lake yet but the other two are great! Lots of trails to the falls.
Day trip from Squamish to Vancouver Island. (5 Replies)
I was thinking to have day trip from Squamish to Nanaimo and visit Cathedral Grove and Englishman River Falls Provincial Park. Is it doable? or too much hassle?

It's doable but a lot of hassle. Better to spend ar least one night on the Island.
