Kemp Lake Green Space

Kemp Lake Green Space is in the seaside community of Sooke, one of thirteen communities that form the Capital Regional District of British Columbia and is part of the Juan De Fuca Electoral District Parkland. At the end of Chubb Road is a narrow area to access Kemp Lake. This green space provides access to the small  fresh water lake for canoes, rowboats and any un-motorized boats. Migratory water fowl and other birds are seen here. Seasonally dragonflies abound, and there is also seasonal waterlilies. There is a small dock on the narrow waterfront of this green space. This site could be used to launch a personal water craft like a paddle board, kayak or canoe. It is a great place to walk in your back yard.

Kemp Lake Green Space can be reached from the Trans Canada Highway. Take the Langford Parkway exit and follow along to reach Sooke Road (Hwy 14). Follow highway 14 as it becomes West Coast Road. Continue along to Kemp Lake Road.  Turn right onto Kemp Lake Road and continue along the roadway to reach Chubb Road. Follow Chubb Road to the end and look for the water access. There is limited parking in this area. City buses travel along Sooke Road and the West Coast Road infrequently.

One thought on “Kemp Lake Green Space

  1. This is not a park. It is a “beach access” point where there is not actually a beach. It is the end of a single lane road where there is room for a few cars or turn around. The lake bottom at this point is mud and weeds. Neighbours have put in a small floating dock. People do launch canoes and such from this point.
