Add one part scenic majesty and two parts outdoor activities and the result is a near-perfect camping territory.

Cumberland campgrounds cover a territory from the shores of Comox Lake to Buttle Lake in Strathcona Provincial Park. They provide a convenient base for fishing, hiking, mountain biking and rock climbing.

Cumberland Lake Park Campground

On the shores of Comox Lake 5km/3mi from Cumberland, the Cumberland Lake Park Campground has 18 RV sites, 44 tent sites plus wooded areas, hiking trails, swimming, picnic area and playground. Its boat launch provides access to Comox Lake for boaters and anglers. The campground lies within easy reach of Cumberland, the Comox Valley and Strathcona Provincial Park.
