Premier Listings for Hemer Provincial Park

Hemer Provincial Park (93 hectares) is located on Holden Lake, southeast of Nanaimo.

This charming park was a gift from John and Violet Hemer to the province of British Columbia.

As much as the ocean dominates the landscape near Nanaimo, there are several freshwater lakes where paddlers will find serenity in a rural setting.

You can put in at Hemer Provincial Park on Holden Lake or at nearby Quennell Lake. Holden’s shape is rather straightforward, with only one major bay. Quennel is nothing but bays. The action at both is a good excuse for some paddling and perhaps cutthroat trout fishing.

A short network of forested trails leads through the woods from the parking lot at Hemer Provincial Park to the west side of Holden Lake.

This park is a popular bird watching area. A viewing platform over the marsh, approximately 1 km from the parking lot, provides the opportunity to observe various types of ducks, Trumpeter swans, Bald eagles and turkey vultures, as well as beavers.

Facilities are limited to a picnic area and pit toilets.

Hemer Provincial Park is located near Nanaimo on Southern Vancouver Island. Follow the signs a short distance east from Hwy 1 to reach the park. A backroad leads south of Holden Lake to Quennel Lake near Yellow Point in Nanaimo.
