  • This park is a bit of an oddity, a provincial park attached to a regional park of the same name. It's the farthest point to the potholes but parking's free which is nice (paid in the regional park). S...  more »
  • I'm from Alberta, where everything is flat. Walking and hiking around the Sooke potholes is just so peaceful and beautiful. Highly recommend if you are in the Sooke area  more »

  • I used to bring young YMCA campers here long before it had Park Rules and Restrictions. However, 45 years later, the park is still very accessible, with beautiful groomed trails and lots of parking. Good ice cream too!
  • Great swimming hole(s). Good spot for kids, nice shallow slow moving water. Water is nice and clean. Out houses are about story 😐
  • This is a cool place,Don't tear it down,Turn a lemon into a enterprise of fun. The Sooke Pot Holes is unique in more ways than one.An attempt to build a resort failed because of the economic times.The graffiti art that covers the wall is impressive pop art.The day we were there the place was crawling with youth that were having a party.Have fun and play safe
  • A beautiful place to explore! I've only been here twice. Once in the summer and once in November. In the summer, this is a very popular swimming spot. All the parking lots were full and there was a lineup for a spot. At the last parking lot, the outhouse was overflowing and filthy, even though there was a park attendant standing nearby. If you're coming for a swim, you'll have to deal with all this. For me, I prefer to enjoy the nature in peace and stay away from the crowds. When I came in November, the forest was green and lush. I hiked up to Mary Vine Falls, which was bursting with action. My 5 stars are for the location and nature, not the summer busyness or the lack of cleanliness during peak times.
  • Beautiful and easy access. Amazing waterfalls and great trails. See something new every time I go.
