It’s official!

The Village of Cumberland has announced the Cumberland Lake Wilderness Society has been awarded the contract for managing Cumberland Lake Park.

The lakefront municipal park and campground is the only road-accessible public land on Comox Lake, and is a popular recreation destination for residents of Cumberland, the wider Comox Valley, and beyond.

Kevin McPhedran is the Village of Cumberland Parks and Outdoor Recreation Coordinator.

McPhedran says along with the campground, boat launch and other existing park amenities, CLWS will be
offering new outdoor recreation, education, and experiential learning programs to the public.

He says offering these new programs is part of the Society’s vision to expand wilderness education and
recreation programming in the area and to take advantage of the park’s unique lakefront location.

Some good news on this for outdoor enthusiasts, camping opportunities will also continue to be offered.
