“Beautiful lake and beach”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

This provincial park has a beautiful picnic and beach area. Lake Cowichan in the centre of Vancouver Island is about 35 km long with many bays, and provides crystal clear fresh water with excellent swimming and boating.

“Nice place to spend some time on the beach and swimming”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

This is a nice place that doesn't seem to get too overcrowded. The water is very pleasant for swimming. There are picnic tables. The beach has some grassy areas, and some sand, but a lot of it is a fine gravel. It's okay to walk on barefoot, though. We've never tried the campground, just the beach.

“Wonderful beach and forest”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

it is perfect---the water, the forest, and not too crowded. A real gem. Worth the drive. A great place to picnic and walk and swim. Even a day trip is nice, although camping looks good,
