Lakes and Rivers
Englishman River offers a number of fun options to cool off in the summer or watch the river roar in the winter. Top Bridge is a local favourite as it's just a couple minutes from downtown Parksville and the beach resorts as well as being right beside the dedicated mountain bike park. Englishman River Falls Provincial Park has great swimming just a short hike down to the lower falls. This spot is well-shaded and the water temperature is known for being cooler than others in the area - perfect for those who are 'air conditioning challenged'.The crystal clear waters of Horne Lake make for a great place to go swimming, paddling, or just hang out on the beach! Horne Lake Adventure Camp offers a multitude of rentals so you don't have to lug everything yourself. Choose from canoes, single and double kayaks, wakeboards, tubes, and lifejackets. You can even take an evening paddling trip with a certified instructor who can teach you proper technique.
