Little Qualicum Falls Provincial Park straddles the scenic Little Qualicum River, west of Parksville, where impressive waterfalls cascade and plummet down a rocky gorge in a beautiful forest setting.
Perhaps the most magnificent park on Vancouver Island, Little Qualicum Falls incorporates the entire southern shore of Cameron Lake, adjacent to MacMillan Provincial Park and the awesome Cathedral Grove Rainforest. Cameron Lake is bordered by steep mountains: Mt. Wesley to the north and Mt. Arrowsmith to the south.
This magnificent 440-hectare park is a popular family recreation area. On hot summer days the Little Qualicum River offers a number of cool, clear pools, great for a refreshing dip. Shaded riverside trails and picnic facilities along Cameron Lake make Little Qualicum a favoured destination.
Numerous walking and hiking trails are available in and adjacent to the park. Loop trails on both sides of the Little Qualicum River provide access to numerous swimming holes and the upper and lower falls. The Wesley Ridge trail originates in the park, taking hikers on a 5 to 6 hour round trip hike up Wesley Ridge.
