    Area Data

    Desolation Sound Marine Provincial Park

    Desolation Sound Marine Provincial Park (8,256 hectares) is British Columbia's largest marine park. It includes more than 60 km of shoreline, several offshore islands and a gradually rising upland that contains a number of lakes, waterways and waterfalls. Unwin Lake, a 173-hectare body of fresh water, is the park's largest lake. Set back to the north and east, Coast Mountains soar to more than 2,400 metres. The warm waters surrounding the area teem with sea life. Ideal for swimming, scuba diving and feasting on your catch of the day, salmon, cod, prawns, crab, clams and oysters. Plenty other tasty morsels lie beneath on the oceans floor; to acquire them you must put on your scuba gear and get a little wet, or you could take a short drive by boat or car to the Laughing Oyster Restaurant at the head of Okeover Inlet, which is one, if not the best, place to eat in the overall area of Powell River.

    Okeover Arm Provincial Park

    Okeover Arm Provincial Park is located on Okeover Arm, a long neck of water along the east side of the Malaspina Peninsula on the northern Sunshine Coast. Visitors and paddlers will enjoy the 4-hectare park's waterfront setting and small campground. There are hiking trails that wind through lightly forested uplands, and outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy swimming, fishing, diving and boating.

    The park is the choice of paddlers intent on exploring Desolation Sound Marine Provincial Park and is also an ideal launching spot for kayakers who plan to paddle the sheltered waters of the Malaspina Inlet.

    Divers can explore the Okeover Caves on the east side of Okeover Arm. The sheer rock wall descends straight down and there are two caves, with the deeper one being at 27 to 30 metres. There are facilities for divers in Lund that include dive-kayak rentals, charters and air fills.

    This park offers 14 vehicle accessible campsites and 4 tent only sites on a first-come, first-served basis and campsite reservations are not accepted. The 14 vehicle accessible sites are open seasonally and the 4 tent only sites are open all year. Except in the busiest summer months, you'll probably have your choice of any of the walk-in sites in the forest beside Okeover Arm.

    Part of the campsite and day use area is situated on a traditional Tla'amin First Nations archeological site. There are interpretive signs explaining the significant aspects of the site.

    Although this park does not have a boat launch, there is a boat launch immediately adjacent to the park. Please note that the boat launch is only recommended for use during high tides and with 4-wheel drive vehicles.


    Only a few minutes drive from the government wharf is the historic community of Lund, where you can find a grocery and liquor store, a few restaurants, pub, marine mechanics, tour and recreation services.

    The area of Lund was established in 1899 when the Thulin Brothers started to build the hotel, which is still in use today. Recently the hotel has changed ownership and has seen a major renovation. For most of the early years Lund served as a port for fisherman. Today Lund thrives on its attraction from tourists.

    Desolation Sound, Savary Island, Harwood Island, Bliss Landing and the Copeland Islands are areas of interest and are all located in close proximity to the property. The area is rich in natural beauty and abundant with sea life. The area is also rated among the best in the world for its scuba diving.

    Powell River

    Powell River, with a population of approximately 20,000 people, is the largest center closest to the property, and just a 20-minute drive south.
