Englishman River Falls Provincial Park

After we left French Beach Provincial Park during our 2015 Vacation, we camped for three nights at Englishman River Falls Provincial Park, on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada.

It was the first time that we camped at this park, but we have visited the falls in 2008. We enjoyed it very much, the weather was warmer than at French Beach.

Englishman River Falls Provincial Park has lovely scenery, friendly camp staff, neat campsites, with firewood for sale, there is no sani-dump or showers. There were many birds, like woodpeckers, Robins, crows, etc. I even saw an owl. Nearby attractions include Englishman River Falls, Coombs, Goats on the roof, Cathedral Grove, Little Qualicum falls, etc.

“This picturesque destination, set amid a lush old-growth and second-growth forest of Douglas fir, cedar, hemlock and maple, is an ideal location from which to explore and appreciate the incredible diversity of south central Vancouver Island, including nearby Cathedral Grove, the Pacific Rim, and the sandy shores of Parksville and Qualicum.” – Englishman River Falls Provincial Park

“Established in 1940, the 240-acre park was named as the result of an old legend, wherein First Nations people found the skeleton of a white man along the river near the waterfall, thereby giving the falls its name. The area was declared parkland to protect the old growth Douglas Fir forest and the area around the Englishman River and the falls. ” – Vancouver Island beyond Victoria.
