Park in BC (JF Bergeron photo)
Seeking sandy beaches, great hiking, fast-flowing rapids or quiet campsites in the Gibsons area? The evergreen Sunshine Coast offers a bit of everything for outdoorsy types at its numerous provincial, regional, city, and marine parks.
Roberts Creek Provincial Park lies a short drive north on Highway 101 from Gibsons. At this 40ha/99ac park, full-service camping is available from mid-June to mid-September at 21 vehicle-accessible, forest-enclosed sites. Stroll the ocean beach and watch for whales and seals, as well as mussels, oysters, and sea stars. Swimming, tidal fishing for salmon and cod (with a license), and picnicking are among the other options.
Mount Elphinstone Provincial Park offers 139ha/344ac of terrain laden with firs and cedars to explore. Along the extensive, mossy trails, hikers can spot numerous different species of mushrooms.
