Went for an afternoon hike. The trail we took was about 3 hrs. Very scenic. Took the dog. Found a little beach on the trail and stopped for a bit. There could definitely be some better maps.

Where we live, there are no huge trees and clear water bodies of water. So it is a pleasure to come to a park like this because it has everything we don't. A pleasant stop off beside the road well worth the stopping.

This is one if not my favourite place to camp. Great river great spots. Great surroundings. Really good tubing as the park is like an l along the river. Lots of private spots. Best in July and early September.

Not sure. Probably, owing to economic downturn in the area and the need for revenues. Check provincial parks or Cowichan city website; fees schedule should be listed.
