Little Qualicum Falls Provincial Park straddles the scenic Little Qualicum River, west of Parksville, where impressive waterfalls cascade and plummet down a rocky gorge in a beautiful forest setting. Perhaps the most magnificent park on Vancouver Island, Little Qualicum Falls incorporates the entire southern shore of Cameron Lake, adjacent to MacMillan Provincial Park and the awesome Cathedral Grove Rainforest. Cameron Lake is bordered by steep mountains: Mt. Wesley to the north and Mt. Arrowsmith to the south.

Used to stretch our legs but was very pretty. The falls are cool and you can kind of choose where you walk and how far.

This is a great trail, with awesome views of the river and falls. The trail can be challenging, so watch out and look where you going. The rushing water sound is soothing and the beautiful view is awesome.

Been here many times. The falls and river walk are very nice. Best time to go is off peak -- can get busy otherwise. Campsite is very nice. Definitely worth a visit or three.

Great spot to camp! Can't wait to come back. Big sites very private and lots to do around the area. Beautiful bridges over the river and clean outhouses!

We think one of the nicer waterfalls on Vamcouver island that are easy to reach. Not as impressive as the falls in Wells Gray or the rockies, but when tou are in the area, it is nice to spend and hour or so there.

This is a great stop for a short hike. Very beautiful with falls and many viewing areas along the river. Very quiet place to hike.

Very scenic and quiet trails with waterfalls and unique plant life. We meant to only go for a short walk as a rest stop but ended up getting very lost and spent hours finding our way out. And we weren't the only ones. Many others...More

We didn't notice many, but we were there in the middle of a very warm day.
