Lake Provincial Park is located northwest of Campbell River on Vancouver Island. Set in the Nimpkish Valley, Schoen Lake is considered to be one of the most beautiful parks and camping areas on Vancouver Island.
The Park protects old-growth forest, glaciers, waterways, meadows, small lakes and essential deer, elk and fish habitat. One of the best ways to experience this park is from one of the wilderness campsites on Schoen Lake.
Known for its superb scenery, the 8,430-hectare park is a popular destination for wilderness hiking, and offers great opportunities for boating, swimming, fishing, backpacking, camping and climbing in a rugged, wilderness environment. There are canoeing and kayaking opportunities at this park in 5-km long Schoen Lake. Paddlers can set in at a rough boat launching area, located at the Schoen Lake campsite.
