Little Qualicum Falls Provincial Park straddles the scenic Little Qualicum River, west of Parksville, where impressive waterfalls cascade and plummet down a rocky gorge in a beautiful forest setting.

Perhaps the most magnificent park on Vancouver Island, Little Qualicum Falls incorporates the entire southern shore of Cameron Lake, adjacent to MacMillan Provincial Park and the awesome Cathedral Grove Rainforest. Cameron Lake is bordered by steep mountains: Mt. Wesley to the north and Mt. Arrowsmith to the south.

This was a great short walk to the lower falls. Lots of stairs. Gets cold under tree canopy but lower falls were lovely. Toilets by the car park are only open 'during season'. We're not open today.

First time at the site to have a new experience. Found the walk very interesting and the scenery awesome, especially with the higher waterflow through the falls.

Beautiful park with a great hike around the falls. Be sure to bring your camera! Views are spectacular. You tend to hike pretty slowly as you are looking at the falls from many different angles. It is a fun day!

A fantastic camping site as well, used both by locals and travelers. Nice playground for the kids, and safe swimming holes in the summer months. Just a 10 minute drive from Parksville on the...

We were driving by on the highway and decided to stop in and see the falls. We were not disappointed. It's about a 45 minute walk around to see both the upper and lower falls. The trails are a bit rugged in spots, but the views of the waterfalls are amazing!

The trails around the falls are very accessible & the scenery is amazing We were there in the pouring rain but that didn't dampen our enthusiasm for this attraction.

Well worth the walks to Upper and Lower Falls, though there are lots of stairs involved. Upper Falls has fewer steps. You can feel the massive force of the water squeezing through the narrow rocks.
