The scenic Nimpkish Lake Provincial Park is situated on the southwestern side of Nimpkish Lake, south of Port McNeill on Vancouver Island. The park protects old-growth coastal western hemlock forests in the Tlakwa Creek watershed, which features high ecological and wildlife values.
Highway 19 runs above Nimpkish Lake’s eastern shore, providing awesome views of the steep forested slopes of the Karmutzen Range that frame Nimpkish Lake.
Windsurfing on the 22-km long Nimpkish Lake is very popular. Strong and reliable winds rise here on summer afternoons. If they don’t, you can still lie back and enjoy the views of the rugged mountainscape that surrounds the lake. The Nimpkish Speed Slalom Windsurfing Weekend, held in early August, is the highlight of the windsurfing season at Nimpkish Lake.
