Spider Lake Provincial Park encompasses Spider Lake and its shoreline, west of Parksville on Vancouver Island. This quiet and peaceful park is a day-use only recreation area.
The 65-hectare park is a great place for a family outing, with the warm water lake being noted for its excellent swimming, canoeing and kayaking potential. Paddlers can spend a peaceful afternoon exploring the shoreline and the many secluded bays. Shaded lakeside trails and a lovely sandy beach make Spider Lake a favoured destination.
Spider Lake (57 hectares) contains smallmouth bass, which provide year round fishing. The lake is also stocked with both steelhead and rainbow trout that provide plenty of excitement on a fly or light tackle. Powerboats are prohibited on the lake, but small cartoppers can be launched from the beach beside the parking lot.
