How to Get to Thetis Lake Park
A trail, a beach, a quick dip in the lake? This park offers the trifecta of outdoor recreation!
Just 23 mins away from the suites, you can easily spend half a day here.
One of the most visited regional parks in the Capital Regional District, Thetis Lake is one of the largest regional parks with over 40 kilometers of recreational trails to explore. Established as Canada’s first nature sanctuary in 1958, this park promotes natural area conservation and recreation.
Go for a hike on the scenic trails hugging Upper and Lower Thetis lakes. For panoramic views of the lakes and surrounding hills, follow the more challenging trails up Seymour or Scafe hills. In spring, wildflowers dot the hillsides. Please help us protect this sensitive habitat by staying on designated trails and keeping pets on the trail.
While close to urban areas, Thetis Lake Regional Park provides access to backcountry recreation. From this location, recreational trails can take you to a number of summits including Stewart Mountain and Scafe Hill.
The beach area of Thetis Lake is perfect for a family picnic or refreshing swim. If you have a canoe, try an early morning paddle and you may even have the lake all to yourself.
