A good walk
Sep. 2020
This is a lovely place to take a walk and see what people can accomplish when they don't mean to haha. This place wouldn't exist if someone hadn't decided to make a dam that consequently killed off all the trees within the flood area. It is very good walk to enjoy if you have some time.

Have never seen so much lichen growing from trees and shrups. So much that it looked like icicles hanging from the branches. The air must be so pure there!!!!

Very interesting walk followed by great trails.

After walking the boardwalk through this magical lagoon, we hiked trails and really enjoyed the west coast forest and beach. Most trails are well marked and because the island is only 3 miles long, you can't really get lost.

A Walk Surrounded By Water
Jul. 2019
The ecological park was created on the remains of a fish cannery "lake" that was created many years ago by damming a natural spring. A planked walkway takes visitors over the water and offers a view of water plants like skunk cabbage, old growth stumps partially covered by water and other swamp plants. It's eerily beautiful. The land portion of the trail meanders through old growth forests. We walked to the park from downtown Alert Bay on residential streets--about 20-30 minutes. There is parking available closer to the entrance, as well as a campground. If you want a break from civilization, the park is a quiet escape.

Great place to see some old growth trees, no worries about bears as there are none on the island. Just bring your umbrella just in case as you are in the rain forest!

Beautiful walk through today the forest
Sep. 2019
We spent a couple of hours wandering the well marked trails through the ecological park. It was quiet with the sound of birds calling. It was peaceful and the boardwalk through the Swamp was almost otherworldly. It was a lovely way to spend some time communing with nature. Even the big slugs were interesting. Be sure to watch where you step.
Lots of great photo opportunities.

village rv park
Jun. 2019 • Couples
Cormorant Island, Alert Bay, has a very nice rv park, with power and water, grassy sites, some with a view. About 12 fully serviced sites, and numerous tenting opportunities, in treed or open sites. The grounds are kept very clean, as are the coin operated showers. ($1. for 3 mins.) and washrooms. A nice steep walk to the waterfront to view the docks and cruise ships passing by, and whale watching is available. The ecological park is a definite must see, along with the native history museum.

We went to walk through here in the early evening and the light was perfect for all the photographic opportunities that this park holds. It is a place that spoke to my heart and I felt the need to tread softly in this space. It is a walk to put on your list of to do things in Alert Bay.

Swamp Tromp
Jun. 2019 • Couples
Okay, we didn't have to tromp through a swamp, The elevated walkway was in good shape and took us across an interesting area. Wish there were interpretive signs to explain the area and the fire that may have taken the old cedar trees.

The coolest thing for us was that we found bunchberry in bloom. This is not earth shattering news, but it is the name of the street we live on in Boise, Idaho. Now we know. what a bunchberry is.
