Bamberton Provincial Park, covers an area of 28 hectares on the west side of Saanich Inlet. To the east across the inlet is the Saanich Peninsula, with the Gulf Islands and Mount Baker in Washington State beyond. Rising sharply to the west are the mountains of south Vancouver Island.
The warm waters around the Saanich Inlet are ideal for swimming and boating, and the fine beaches stretch on for miles and miles.
Canoes and kayaks may be used in the inlet. Paddlers can put in at the beach area. The sheltered inlet around Bamberton is a great paddling location, offering views of Mt. Baker and the Saanich Peninsula. There is no boat launch available at this park. The nearest launch is located at the Mill Bay Marina, approximately 5 minutes north of the park off Highway 1.
