Welcome to the Alberni Valley, home of Vancouver Island’s premier warm water lake. The waters of this popular British Columbia vacation destination are so clear that you can easily see thirty feet down. Waterfront homes, cabins and lots dot the shoreline, but the majority of Sproat Lake’s 140 kilometers of foreshore remains uninhabited, and is lined by beaches and beautiful Douglas fir forests. Road access to Sproat Lake is a short distance from Highway 4, the highway that connects the rest of Vancouver Island to world famous Ucluelet, Tofino and Long Beach. Thousands of tourists stop to enjoy the waters of Sproat Lake every year on their way to the Pacific Rim. Needless to say, Sproat Lake offers top-notch warm water swimming, water skiing, boating, house boating, fishing, camping, nature watching and even wind surfing.
