The Provincial Campgrounds – Gordon Bay  For a great family camping vacation, head to Gordon Bay Provincial Park, located on the shores of Lake Cowichan, north of Duncan on Vancouver Island. In the summer the lake is warm and the sandy beach makes for great family swimming. History buffs find plenty to interest them in the park and the surrounding area, which is home to a second-growth Douglas-fir forest. Set in one of Vancouver Island’s sunniest valleys, this area boasts the highest average annual temperature in Canada. Group campsites have been repurposed at this park – Due to ongoing operational changes as part of our COVID-19 response, group campsites have been repurposed at this park for new family camping opportunities. Please check the COVID-19 page for the most up-to-date information.
