Englishman River Falls Provincial Park Campground is a stunning 97-hectare park situated 13 kilometres southwest of Parksville, just off Hwy 4 toward Port Alberni.

The park boasts two beautiful waterfalls cascading along the Englishman River, with a breathtaking canyon between them. The lower falls offer a swimming hole and a small beach area, perfect for sunbathing.

You can also explore the park's numerous hiking and biking trails that wind through the old-growth forest and along the river. And if you're looking to hit the beach, a short drive to the Parksville-Qualicum area will lead you to sandy ocean beaches.

Englishman River Falls Campground is a great place to stay if you want to spend a weekend exploring the area. The campground trails access swimming holes and the Englishman River Falls, and camping sites are framed by huge trees offering shaded private camping sites.

Campsite – Each site includes a picnic table and a campfire ring. Firewood can be purchased from the park operator.

Water – Cold water taps are located at the campground and in the day-use area.

Toilets – Pit toilets are located throughout the park. There is one flush toilet building located in the day-use parking lot.

Seasonal Dates- The park is open all year long, but camping is available from the beginning of May to the End of September.

Reservations – Campsite reservations are recommended to guarantee you have a place to stay. First-come, first-served sites are also available if you want to be spontaneous.
