Kennedy Lake Provincial Park is a popular day-use destination for lake and beach-based recreation. This park is comprised of two sites along the south shore of Kennedy Lake, adjacent to Pacific Rim National Park Reserve on the west coast of Vancouver Island. Visitors come to swim, kayak, fish and windsurf at this beautiful park, where in the fall it is possible to view beach spawning of sockeye. Black bears are frequent visitors at this time. Due to the steep-sided mountains surrounding Kennedy Lake, the largest body of fresh water on Vancouver Island, winds whip up across the main part of the lake and Clayoquot Arm with little warning, requiring extreme caution by paddlers and boaters. Facilities at this day-use only park include a small picnic area, pit toilets and a small rustic boat launch suitable for car tops only. Pets/domestic animals must be on a leash at all times and are not allowed in beach areas or park buildings. No camping or overnight parking.

Great place with several day use areas and boat ramp. Popular for swimming, kayaking and other non-motorised water sports. Black bears can sometimes be seen from Sept - Nov.
