Morton Lake Provincial Park

 

Morton Lake Provincial Park is found 27 km northwest of the town of Campbell River and offers a relaxing, tranquil lakefront camping experience. This park is very popular with anglers, as it is adjacent to two lakes – Morton and Mohun, which offer excellent opportunities for catching rainbow, cutthroat, and Dolly Varden trout. For visitors who are not interested in fishing, there is plenty of other recreational pursuits, including swimming, sunbathing on a sandy beach, boating, and canoeing. Morton Lake Provincial Park provides access to the popular Sayward Canoe Route – a 47-kilometer paddle and portage circuit.
