Okeover Arm Provincial Park
Okeover Arm Provincial Park is located on Okeover Arm, a long neck of water along the east side of the Malaspina Peninsula on the northern Sunshine Coast.

Visitors and paddlers will enjoy the 4-hectare park's waterfront setting and small campground. There are hiking trails that wind through lightly forested uplands, and outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy swimming, fishing, diving and boating.

The park is the choice of paddlers intent on exploring Desolation Sound Marine Provincial Park, BC's largest marine park, and is also an ideal launching spot for kayakers who plan to paddle the sheltered waters of the Malaspina Inlet.

Divers can explore the Okeover Caves on the east side of Okeover Arm. The sheer rock wall descends straight down; there are two caves, the deeper is at 27 to 30 metres. There are facilities for divers in Lund that include dive-kayak rentals, charters and air fills.


Federal Dock at Okeover Arm
This park offers 14 vehicle accessible campsites and 4 tent only sites on a first-come, first-served basis - campsite reservations are not accepted. The 14 vehicle accessible sites are open seasonally and the 4 tent only sites are open all year. Except in the busiest summer months, you'll probably have your choice of any of the walk-in sites in the forest beside Okeover Arm.

Part of the campsite and day use area are situated on a traditional Sliammon Fist Nations archeological site. There are interpretive signs explaining the significant aspects of the site.

Although this park does not have a boat launch, there is a boat launch immediately adjacent to the park. Please note that the boat launch is only recommended for use during high tides and with 4 wheel drive vehicle.

Okeover Arm Provincial Park is about 19 km north of Powell River near the northern terminus of Highway 101, and can be accessed off the Sunshine Coast Highway 101, continuing to Malaspina Road, which winds down to Okeover Arm.
