The journey to the falls isn’t strenuous, and is located very close to the parks entrance. The park itself can be reached by car off of Highway #14, and is situated near the Nanaimo District.

You’ll find it on the side of the stunning Cameron Lake, where many people go for a refreshing dip in the hot summer months.
