  • Absolutely beautiful. If you're an outdoors person at all, and in the maple ridge area this place is a must! Lots of hikes, camping and swimming holes. Plus, there is great cliff jumping spots and fishing spots. Highly recommended! πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘Œ
  • The hike up to Gold Creek Falls is a fairly easy one but you can get some amazing views. It's fantastic in the summer when you can actually swim in the water on the way up. There are also some decent cliff jumping spots at the falls if you're brave enough.
  • Great place for camping, picnicking, photography and hiking. No service up here so beware. If you want to camp here for the summer, it's extremely competitive to get a spot to reserve waaaaaay ahead of time
  • Beautiful location, beautiful setting. Great staff. Go mid-week to avoid the madness. One of the first parks I've gone to where I've been pleasantly surprised to find that the campsites are rather nicely spaced. Long weekends can be busy, especially when the locals arrive in their speed boats that think that we're all paying attention. Be prepared for rain as higher elevation and upslope conditions can surprise you after a few days of sun. Overall a beautiful park that's well run and well looked after.
  • I love Golden Ears Park. The mountains and lakes seems so far away from the city even though it's a quick drive to get too. Whether you like hiking, swimming in the river, or kayaking on the lake, this is an excellent Provincial Park to get away from it all.
