Little Qualicum Falls
A favourite destination on Vancouver Island is Little Qualicum Falls Park, which incorporates the entire southern shore of Cameron Lake and straddles the Little Qualicum River. The Qualicum River originates from Cameron Lake and winds its way through the park providing breathtaking and picturesque views as it descends through a rocky gorge in a beautiful forested setting. A number of hiking trails are available in and around the park, providing access to the upper and lower falls. Cameron Lake is an ideal spot for swimming and fishing, as well as sail boarding, due to a wind funnel created by the surrounding mountains. The Cameron Lake and Beaufort day-use areas are located 10 minutes west of the campground on Highway 4.
