This place has great places to hike, a nice walk to a nature house (great for kids) and beautiful scenery. Big trees and a stream that runs beside the park. Even as locals, we try to get here a few times a year. Especially for the Salmon run in November!

While the campsites are large if you have a large trailer or motor-home getting out is a problem. Coming in is fine but the exit road is very narrow, windy and has a deep drop on either side. There seems to be no enforcement of camp rules, except when it comes to generators. Both trips last year came with groups... More

We had visited Goldstream Park on a previous trip to Victoria, and enjoyed seeing the salmon migrating up the river. That was in early Autumn. This time, in May, there were no salmon, so we hiked up to the waterfall -- variously referred to on Google Maps as Niagara Falls and Golden Falls. It resembles neither of these famous cataracts,...

I am a bit frustrated by BC provincial parks signs, they never say any details like distances or walking times. It was also really annoying to park here. We walked to the train trestle, among other things, and it was really good. We also camped in the camp grounds within the park: It was a really nice camp ground but... More

We had a very relaxing walk through the the park which has a well groomed trail. The trees were huge! We managed to spot some very pretty flowers and just enjoyed the peace and quiet of nature!

Parking can be a bit tricky, but stick it out and find a spot. The park is GORGEOUS. I've lived here all my life and never get tired of it. Informational nature houses, amazing trails, stunning scenery. A great visit for any nature lover!

We drove from Victoria and parked by the visitors centre. Facilities were good with a gift shop, visitors centre, picnic and bbq area and toilets. There is parking on the other side of the road as well. The visitors centre was helpful on advising us where was good to walk. We crossed the road through the river tunnel (not the... More

After a 35 minute somewhat challenging hike, (which included trekking through a small river under a tunnel, and a couple of steep steps!) we made it to the famous and picturesque Goldstream trestles. The view from the top was breathtaking. It's heaven for those who love photography! Make sure you go on a day when the weather is cleat otherwise... More

This was a fantastic day! The girl in the gift shop was most helpful giving us all the details of the trails we could go on. We choose to go to Niagara Falls and up to the old railroad trestle. It was a beautiful hike. I may have fell in love here ❤ Thanks for a great day, Tony and... More
