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.

Extremely gorgeous falls and a very nice small hike to pass a couple hours. Ideal for dog walking and great for capturing a nice pic or 2

Beautiful wild falls with a nice circle track that was also doable for our four year old. The track gives you nice views of the falls.

Beautiful waterfalls! Very nice and clean provincial park. There was a covered picnic area so it would be great for spending some time there. My son and I just stopped in for a short walk to see the falls. He loved them!

We were surprised how really beautiful the falls were. It's very walkable, kid friendly. Highly recommended. Bathrooms readily available, but bring water.

Went here with friends and family. A beautiful hike to the falls that we could just sit and watch all day. Not to tough a hike for the older of us and easy for the younger to follow
