Sargeant Bay Park


Accessibility information

Accessibility information is available for this park.

Picnic areas

This park has a day-use/picnic area. There is a grassy area and a cobble beach with beach logs. Access is still available to the day-use area if the gate is locked. Pit toilets are available.

Pit or flush toilets
This park only has pit toilets; no flush toilets.
Colvin Creek trail easy hiking and approximately 1 kilometre. Sargeants Bay trail is along beach front to the fish ladder and is approximately 300 metres in length. For your own safety and the preservation of the park, obey posted signs and keep to designated trails. Shortcutting trails destroys plant life and soil structure.
There is cold ocean swimming available. The beach is grassy and cobble. There is no roped off swimming area. There are no lifeguards on duty at provincial parks.
Canoes and kayaks are welcome at this park. Rentals are available nearby at Halfmooon Bay.

Excellent saltwater/ocean fishing. Anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia must have an appropriate licence.

Wildlife viewing
Exellent wildlife viewing for marine wildlife and water fowl in wetland behind beach burm. There is also a fish ladder and beaver dam.
Pets on leash
Pets/domestic animals must be on a leash at all times and are not allowed in beach areas or park buildings. You are responsible for their behaviour and must dispose of their excrement. Backcountry areas are not suitable for dogs or other pets due to wildlife issues and the potential for problems with bears.

Cycling is permitted on the main trail from the 101 Hwy to Sargeants Bay. This connects to the Trout Lake Hiking and Mountain Bike trails. Cycling is permitted on roads within the park. Bicycle helmets are mandatory in British Columbia.

Please note that bicycles with electric assist motors (e-bikes) are not allowed on the trails within Sargeant Bay Provincial Park. E-bikes are restricted to park roads and areas where motorized use is permitted. The only exception to this policy will be for authorized and identified trail maintenance bikes conducting work on behalf of BC Parks.

Windsurfing opportunities exist in this park.
