Cumberland Campground Enhances Infrastructure, Shoreline Restoration

Cumberland Lake Park Campground has introduced new infrastructure aimed at enhancing the camping experience and restoring the nearby shoreline. A recently opened nature play space now provides children with a safe area to play.

The new play area features natural elements, including newly planted trees and native vegetation, protected by fencing. Additionally, the play space is designed with log structures and a shade sail.

Another significant improvement is the replacement of the old playground, which was removed in 2020 due to safety concerns. The Lake Park Society, a non-profit organization, led the replacement effort.

The completion of this project was made possible by numerous donors. Major contributions came from the Rotary Club of Cumberland Centennial and Mainroad North Island, along with support from over 60 individuals and local businesses.

Village of Cumberland Mayor Brown appreciated the Lake Park Society’s work on adding play features, shade, and riparian plantings to the shoreline of Comox Lake. “We are thrilled with the continued progress on shoreline restoration and are grateful for the hard work of the society and our continued partnership,” Brown said, as reported by Comox Valley Record.

Lake Park Society has been managing the Cumberland Lake Park Campground since 2015. As a non-profit social enterprise, it operates like a business but reinvests all profits back into the community. Additionally, its efforts enhance the park and create jobs for local youth.

According to its website, the campground offers a variety of activities, including swimming, watersports rentals, beautiful hiking trails, and various rock climbing crags and bouldering rocks. Additionally, just 3 km down the road, visitors can find a disc golf course and access to Cumberland’s renowned singletrack, which provides epic mountain biking and endless hiking opportunities.

For the campground’s sites, some can accommodate units up to 40 feet and are close to the beach. These sites are equipped with potable water and 30 Amp electrical service. The sites also offer beach access, a picnic table, and a fire ring.

By incorporating features like a nature play space and shoreline restoration based on the approach by Cumberland Lake Park, private campground operators and RV park owners can enhance the camping experience while prioritizing environmental stewardship. This approach not only attracts more visitors but also caters to environmentally conscious outdoor enthusiasts.
