  • To the west of Parksville is this pristine park encompassing rivers, gorges, waterfalls, and forest treks. It's a great opportunity to be in a secluded, protected area that is not overrun with people ...  more »
  • Tourist attraction on highway 4 or from Tofino. A short walk from the parking lot of the lower and upper case on one circular walk also for smaller children suitable.

  • The falls has two sections. Upper and lower. I went to the lower one. It was a 2 min walk down to the falls. Its beautiful!
  • Easy hiking trails with nice views, and about 100 well-maintained campsites. We stayed here while visiting the big trees at Cathedral Grove, and I would recommend it to anybody looking for a spot to camp not far from there.
  • Spacious quiet sites. Beautiful location. Nice hiking trails. Spectacular falls. Easy in and out.
  • Classic BC parks. Beautiful area and falls. Good walking paths around with numerous bridges. Lack of funding shows in spots.
  • Nice campsites. Well-maintained and reasonably private spots. Gorgeous scenery and hiking trails as well as some good Geocaches
