Premier Listings for Spectacle Lake Park
Spectacle Lake Provincial Park is located north of Victoria and the Malahat range on southern Vancouver Island.
An easy 2-kilometre, well-maintained hiking trail circles the lake, with wooden bridges crossing the numerous creeks and marshy area feeding into Spectacle Lake.
The 65-hectare Spectacle Lake Provincial Park is a great spot for swimming, canoeing, fishing or spending the day picnicking. The lake is cherished by many, as it offers the only eastern brook trout fishing on Vancouver Island.
The lake is regularly stocked with rainbow trout, which means that you must get there early in the season for best results. As you look down through the lake’s incredibly clear water, you’ll see crayfish scuttling along the lake bottom.
Spectacle Lake is special in winter, too, as it offers great outdoor ice-skating.
In addition to the parking lot, toilets and water pump, a boat launch is available for small cartoppers, canoes and kayaks. Wheelchair access is provided.
No camping is permitted in the park.
Spectacle Lake Provincial Park and Spectacle Lake are accessed via Whittaker and Spectacle Lake Roads north of the Malahat, about 2 km west of Highway 1, and 19 miles (30 km) northwest of Victoria.
