Sargeant Bay Provincial Park

About This Park

Sargeant Bay Provincial Park

Sargeant Bay was set aside to preserve the splendid areas of ocean beaches, rocky headlands, lagoons and heavily forested uplands. The beach at this day-use area is excellent for walking and nature viewing.

This park is a day-use picnicking area only; no camping is permitted. This park also features a safe anchorage and hiking trails around Triangle Lake and Colvin Creek.

Special Features

There is a wetland, adjacent to the beach area.

Beaver Pond and Colvin Lake are special features of this park. A salmon-bearing creek runs through the park. There is a fish ladder in the creek to allow fish access to Colvin Lake and Colvin Creek.

To learn more about conservation efforts to preserve the values in this park, visit the Sargeant Bay Society website.

Park Size: 142 hectares
Date Established: March 23, 1990
