This is an easy walk to see Canadian beauty! A variety of huge trees, beautiful fast moving river for spawning salmon in the fall. You’ll feel great breathing in the fresh air and getting out in nature!

MacMillan Provincial Park

Reviewed By BenLar137 - Calgary, Canada

It's quite an experience to walk through the trails of MacMillan Provincial Park, situated between Nanaimo and Port Alberni. The rainforest is so dense with life, huge trees, moss covering practically everything else, it can be a bit overwhelming. But it is indeed a very worthwhile stop. When we were there in April, it was not terribly busy, and we found parking okay. During the summer months, however, I can imagine that it might be a bit of challenge, as there didn't seem to be large parking lots anywhere. We would suggest, therefore, if you're counting on walking these magnificent trails, to head there a bit early, and not leave it to "rush hour." But explore this place if you can! Caution: this IS a rainforest, so it rains a lot here - trails can get wet and muddy! Wear appropriate shoes.

Sproat Lake Provincial Park

Reviewed By Joebear1966 - Fort St. John, Canada

We were visiting Port Alberni in August and our local friend recommended to spend some time at the Sproat Lake just 15 min outside of Port Alberni. Warm water, lots of spaces for camping, or sunbathing.
