At the heart of Vancouver Island lies one of British Columbia’s finest jewels – Great Central Lake. A well-kept secret, Great Central Lake is, in fact, one of British Columbia’s most beautiful warm water lakes. Great Central Lake is 35 kilometers long, with an area of 49 square kilometers, making it the third largest lake on Vancouver Island.
Carved by glaciers during the last ice-age, the lake is long and narrow, beautifully nestled beneath low mountains, with majestic second growth forests hugging nearly the entire shoreline. It is this make-up that has allowed Great Central Lake to remain so wild and natural.
Great Central Lake is home to large (by Vancouver Island standards) trout. It is also the headwaters of the Stamp River, which is world famous for both Steelhead and Salmon fishing. It is not uncommon to see Black Bear, Sitka Deer or Racoon traipsing along the water’s edge. The lucky visitor to Great Central Lake may also catch a glimpse of a Cougar or Vancouver Island Wolf!
In an increasingly hectic world, Great Central Lake offers an oasis to get away from it all. It is a place where time slows down and priceless memories are made. Great Central Lake’s warm waters provide the perfect place to enjoy adventures of the human variety. Swimming, water skiing, wakeboarding, boating, kayaking, canoeing, wake surfing are all common summer activities on the lake. You will find the perfect terrain for hiking, camping and ATV-ing.
Two of Great Central Lake’s most popular destinations are Della Falls and Dorothy Creek. Standing an imposing 440 meters above sea level, Della Falls are the highest water falls in all of Canada. Dorothy Creek’s glacier fed streams have formed a natural waterslide into the lake. Both stunning and iconic destinations are jewels of the Alberni Valley and gems that area local’s absolutely treasure!
