Goldstream Provincial Park, Langford

4.7
Explore the diverse scenery of Goldstream Provincial Park, with plenty of hiking trails leading all the way to the top of Mt. Finlayson. Admire the towering Douglas firs and western red cedars (some up to 600 years old), and check out the abandoned gold mine--testament to the 19th-century gold rush here. If visiting in fall, you have the chance to witness an annual spectacle of salmon pushing through the stream, and a huge gathering of bald eagles feasting on the leftovers. Stop by the visitor's center for travel information, a gift shop, and viewing platform, plus some snacks and beverages. Make Goldstream Provincial Park a centerpiece of your Langford vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Langford road trip planner.

  • This hiking and day park is close enough to the city for easy access. Several camping sites are well situated and there is a nature house with interpreters. The stream is home to a popular salmon run in the autumn and hiking is excellent throughout. Popularity and high volume make for crowded parking on the weekends, but plan it into your schedule. Well worth it.
  • Great place to camp at. Facilities are clean and efficient. Well maintained camp sites. Wood and ice available at gate booth. Patrolled regularly by attentive staff. *Nice in camp ground falls to visit*
  • Nice out of the way park! Has good places to explore. A little challenging ascent. They have a funny version of Niagara falls (haha). The trails are awesome, scenery is great. There is a tiny museum of sorts at one end of the park which I highly recommend seeing! Entrance fee is by donation but the kids would love it!
  • Beautiful camp ground with lots of shade, forestry, and decently private sites. The property is very well maintained, and quiet. There is a beautiful waterfall to swim in within walking distance. It is also a 5 minute drive away to a gas station and timmies, and only a 30 minute drive to downtown Victoria.
  • I only did a few KMs worth of trails but I can tell that this is a very well maintained park. The trails were well kept and there wasn't a sign of human activity outside the trails. All the facilities were clean and in running order. The staff at the customer information center were super helpful and very kid friendly. I wish we had more time to explore all the trails. The plus side is that we had amazing weather too.
