Little Qualicum Falls Provincial Park is a provincial park in British Columbia, Canada, on central Vancouver Island, that encompasses the entire southern shore of Cameron Lake. Little Qualicum Falls Provincial Park was originally established as a park in 1940 to protect the old growth Douglas-fir forest. Swimming, fishing, campgrounds and day-use areas are available within the park, as well as sail boarding due to a wind funnel created by the surrounding mountains, Mount Wesley to the north and Mount Arrowsmith to the south. The park maintains 6 km of walking trails within its perimeter. 49°19′00″N 124°33′00″W / 49.316667°N 124.55°W / 49.316667; -124.55 (Keyhole Falls)[1]
