Cumberland Lake PARK CAMPGROUND
AN UPDATE RELATED TO COVID-19
The health and safety of park users and team members is of the utmost importance to Cumberland Lake Wilderness Society. The Society is following the advice of public health experts and taking steps to limit the spread of COVID-19. Visitors with a reservation do not need to cancel their reservation. In the event of a closure, CLWS will waive reservation cancellation fees and will provide refunds for the full amount paid. CLWS will email and post new information, as it becomes available.
In the meantime, we encourage you to get out and enjoy the incredible trails, beaches, and viewpoints of Cumberland Lake Park. Just remember to maintain a safe social distance and play it safe so as not to further burden the health care system.
Cumberland Lake Park is located on the shores of the glacier-fed Comox Lake and offers sandy beaches, swimming, watersports rentals, concession, campground, coin-operated showers, boat launch, hiking trails and climbing crags.
Cumberland Lake Park is located 5 km west of the Village of Cumberland, known for its legendary mountain biking, pubs, eateries and rich coal mining history.
The Cumberland Lake Wilderness Society (CLWS) is a nonprofit society that operates the campground as a social enterprise in support of our mission to create wonder and connection through outdoor experiences.
