On Highway 4, not far from the turnoff to Englishman River Falls Provincial Park
is the town of Coombs, population 1,000. Settled in around 1910, this community offers family attractions in a rural setting. In the summer, goats grazing on the roof of the local market add to the "old west" atmosphere of the area. In Coombs you can shop, or enjoy a music festival or rodeo. Nearby, both Little Qualicum River Falls Provincial Park and Cameron Lake offer plentiful outdoor recreation opportunities.
