Heather Campsite is located on the lake right next to Heather Mountain. Take either South Shore Road or North Shore Road about 38 km (24 miles) around Cowichan Lake to reach the campsite. If you take North Shore Road, you’ll find the entrance before the turn off to the Carmanah.
Heather Campsite has a nice sandy beach, a boat launch and scenic views. A visitor once said that it is “A very scenic place, where you can see beautiful vistas, magical lake views, clear starry skies, vast clearcuts and large trucks belonging to rednecks.” Part of the campsite’s charm is that its not only at the farthest point from where the lake drains into the Cowichan River but you’re also the farthest from any real civilization you can get on the lake. Its close proximately to Heather Mountain makes it a great place to camp and spend a day hiking up to see the alpine views.
