Spider Lake is a is a smaller lake which can be easily paddled in a hour or two. About one third of the shore line is occupied by Spider Lake Provincial Park providing lots of places to pull up and enjoy a picnic or a swim. One thing I really like about this lake is it’s varied shore line (hence the name) with lots of small inlets and coves which make it a fun lake to explore. Spider Lake is a great lake for inexperienced paddlers or small children as the lake is generally calm and one is never far from shore. Motor boats are not allowed.
Size: 55.3 ha | 137 ac | 553430 m²
Direction: Spider Lake Provincial Park is located 16 km west of Qualicum Beach off Hwy. 19. Turn left on the Horne Lake exit then immediately left again and follow signs to Spider Lake Park on a paved road. When the pavement ends, there is a short section of gravel. Watch for the lake on your right. There is a boat launch beside the parking lot.
