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

Beautiful site. Loved the humid rain forest walking trails by the river and waterfalls. Operator was friendly and funny.

The waterfall is only steps from the parking lot and you can take a relatively easy hike back around through the forest to get back. I recommend this and Little Qualicum Falls park.

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

The amazing view of the falls is incredible, it wasn’t too much a hike, the water, the trees just beautiful. Definitely worth seeing.

No. There are flush toilets in the parking area.

During the day maybe a bit especially on the weekend. All the sites are close so a noisy camper can cause issues for all.

If I remember correctly, there are cold water taps in the campground. It may be a bit awkward filling your rev, but it can be done

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.
