During storm season from early November to the end of January, fierce waves batter Vancouver Island's western shores of Tofino, Long Beach and Ucluelet while King tides invade its eastern shores of Oceanside and Parksville.  Yet in central Vancouver Island there exists calm and tranquility combined with verdant tropical rain forest here at Sproat Lake.  Mist, moss and a steady downpour of fresh rain create a rugged yet romantic window to our unique environment, making Sproat Lake Landing Resort an essential stay to balance out any storm-watching adventure.  Witness the exquisiteness of the rain forest and follow dramatic lake level changes of up to 10 feet; at peak storm times breaching even the 10-year level mark signified by our landscaped terraces!
