Bamberton Provincial Park

 

The warm waters of the Saanich inlet and the 225-meter long sandy beach make this park an inviting spot for family camping. Visitors can enjoy picturesque views across the inlet to the eastern shores of the Saanich peninsula, with the Southern Gulf Islands and Mount Baker visible in the distance. Bamberton Provincial Park features an abundance of arbutus trees - a broadleaf evergreen species with a peculiar reddish trunk and peeling bark. In Canada, this species is confined to the Vancouver Island and the lower coast of mainland British Columbia.
