Description: This rugged, isolated park is one of the largest parks on Vancouver Island and features old growth forest, two lakes, a scenic river canyon and river valleys. The south end of the park encircles the Tahsish River Ecological Reserve, with the river portion of the ecological reserve providing the primary access into the park.

Things to Do: 

Boating - There are opportunities for canoers and kayakers to access this park via Tahsish Inlet, however visitors must first paddle through Tahsish River Ecological Reserve. Recreational use of the Ecological Reserve is prohibited however paddlers are allowed to travel through the river portion of the Ecological Reserve to reach the park.

Fishing - Fishing is permitted (as per provincial and federal fishing regulations) up the Tahsish and Kwois rivers however these areas are difficult to access. Both rivers are home to coho, Chinook, chum and pink salmon as well as three species of trout and Char. Fly fishing is the most popular method of angling in this area.

Hiking - Logging roads in the upper portion of the Tahsish River watershed, outside of the park, provide an opportunity for rugged hiking access to Tahsish-Kwois.

Hunting - Portions of this park are open to hunting for specific species. Hunters must have valid licences and tags.
