  • We did a short hike in the park (about an hr) which lead us to the beautiful view by Lake Helen Mackenzie where we took a short break to dip our feet in the nice cool water. The weather was nice and w...  more »
  • From Campbell River, we drove to this wonderful park, the most beautiful side we found. in winter you can enjoy hiking and skiing when the snow is gone. Only just accessible (a strand of snow here and there) but already in full flower in the meadows. The Paradise Meadows do really their name. Inspiring, and also good passable via boardwalks. Outside are much more beautiful hiking trails, among others, by forest and along fens. Well maintained paths and not too long distances. Beautiful circular walks.

  • If you're driving down by Buttle Lake, try camping at Ralph River Falls and take the short drive over to Myra Falls. Beautiful rock formations and when the water's not too high one can climb over and amongst the falls. The hike from the trailhead to the falls is only about 1k and not too hard.
  • Wonderful location... peaceful and relaxing!!
  • Paradise meadows is beautiful. Great for a short or a long hike just pack food, water and a camera and bring a friend
  • Beautiful and peaceful park! I've been there on September and I think I only saw 2 cars!
  • Spent many days hiking & camping in this park. Top notch destination for anyone who enjoy nature. Many times there was no one else, only me!
