Sproat Lake Provincial Park

Fresh water adventure seekers will not want to miss a visit to Sproat Lake Provincial Park in the Alberni Valley on central Vancouver Island. Located 15 minutes west of Port Alberni, Sproat Lake is a favoured location for swimming, fishing, waterskiing and, when the wind is up, windsurfing.Two separate campgrounds and a large day-use area make this park a popular destination for campers and picnickers, who come here to enjoy the host of recreational pursuits available or just relax in the sun by the warm lake.

In addition, a short 12 minute walk along the water's edge will take you to an amazing rock wall panel of ancient indigenous petroglyphs ( animal carvings) that are over 1000 years old.
