Are you looking for a fun way to explore Comox Lake this Summer? Come rent a sit-on-top kayak or a SUP (stand up paddle board) from our rental shop onsite. We offer single, double or kid size kayaks. Our rental shop is located on the ‘point’ halfway between the main beach and the boat launch.
Climbing crags and bouldering rocks are scattered throughout the woods just a a short walk from the campground. The majority of the routes are 5.10 or easier, making them suitable for most climbers. It offers mostly bolt-protected sport routes and TRAD, with bolted anchors and rappel stations. John Waters’ “Comox Valley Climbs'” guide is a great resource and available at the campground office. Island Alpine Guides also offers climbing courses at the park.

Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location. A cache (container) contains a logbook and may contain treasures. Remember, if you take something, leave something of equal or greater value in return. The only necessities are a GPS device or a GPS-enabled mobile phone so that you can navigate to the cache, and a geocache membership (free version available).
Hiking trails (that pass by the climbing crags) are located behind the campsite with various access points from the public parking lot and the road to the group campsite.
Hiking is also available in the nearby Cumberland Forest, a unique park made possible by the charitable society Cumberland Community Forest Society.
The unofficial epicentre of Island riding, Cumberland boasts more than 80 km of legendary singletrack, plus a riding culture that’s second to none.
Depending which trails you choose, you’ll find combinations of flowy singletrack, fast descents, man-made features or technical cross-country rides that will test your abilities and make you earn every exhilarating descent.
The United Riders of Cumberland is a local non-profit society that manages and advocates for these trails. Memberships are available for purchase on their website.
