Area Information


Fillongley Provincial Park is a 23-hectare forested park located on the east coast of Denman Island. There are several short but scenic hiking trails through a peaceful forest of old-growth firs and cedar trees, and a salmon spawning stream on Little George Creek.

Spend the afternoon basking in the sun or stroll and beachcomb along the driftwood-strewn shoreline. Fillongley provides great views across Lambert Channel to mountainous Hornby Island, and beyond that to the Coast Mountain Range on the BC mainland. Cycling is an ideal way to explore the relaxed and peaceful Denman Island.

From Fillongley Park, paddlers can easily explore the waters around Denman Island and Hornby Island. Canoes and kayaks can set in at the beach at the campsites. This park does not have a boat launch. The closest boat launch is at Bill Mee Park, approximately 10 km away on East Road on Denman Island.

The land that is now Fillongley Provincial Park was bequeathed to the province of British Columbia by George Beadnell, who died in 1958 at the age of 89.

Beadnell was one of the first pioneers on Denman Island and, over the years, developed Fillongley into one of the most beautiful estates in the Gulf Islands. George Beadnell's grave is situated along the Homestead Trail, surrounded by beautiful heritage trees.

Denman Island is reached by ferry from Buckley Bay, between Parksville and Courtenay on the east coast of Vancouver Island. Fillongley Provincial Park is a 2-mile (4-km) drive to the east on good paved roads. Follow Denman Road and turn left on Swan Road, then right on Beadnell Road.
