The park sits on the north shore of Sproat Lake along Highway 4 on Your way to Tofino.

Sproat Lake park has a large day-use / picnic area, located next to the lower campground.
Three separate picnic sites are located throughout the day-use area.
Facilities include a number of picnic tables set under Douglas fir and Western Red Cedar with spectacular views of Sproat Lake.
Fresh water taps, campfire rings, a large grassy area, toilets (one next to the boat launch and one by the lower campground.)
The grassy area and beach are also suitable for a picnic or just enjoying the sun next to the lake.

A variety of short Hiking Trails lead visitors around this park.

Prehistoric Petroglyphs in Port Alberni:
There is a trail to the eastern end of Sproat Lake, which is home to one of the finest panels of prehistoric petroglyphs in British Columbia.
Little is known about this petroglyph, named Kakawin, but it isn't hard to imagine this rock carving as depicting some mystical ancient monsters of the lake.

Sproat Lake is home to the Mars water bombers.
The Martin Mars Bombers are the largest Flying Boats in the World used for Forest Fire Fighting on Vancouver Island and interior BC.

Park Size: 43 hectares
