Great scenery, hikes of all lengths and difficulty levels, helpful staff, nice campground. For a quick stopover, I would suggest the southern headlands and beach trail - a beautiful view!

This park opens for camping and hiking on Victoria Day, but it does not fully open (visitor center, etc.) until July! Do they have to wait for black flies? The hiking is only accessible from the visitor center area but you quickly enter wilderness in...More

We did the coastal trail over 5 days this summer. What an experience! It was magnificent - hard, even brutal at times, technical in many parts, solitary, but over all of this it was a life-affirming experience. Just the camp sites alone were worth the...More

For 2 hours, I would suggest multiple shorter hikes to see a variety of sights. Maybe Headlands, Beach and the Fire Walk?

You can reserve there I think. If it's a long weekend it might be busy but I've never seen in full up.
