One of the best-kept secrets of Desolation Sound is Okeover Arm. Situated at the start of Desolation Sound, the warm waters of Okeover inlet are a haven for wilderness kayaking, canoeing and sailing. These inviting waters are also home to a large mariculture industry, in particular oysters and clams.

Okeover Arm Provincial Park is located on Okeover Arm, a long neck of water along the east side of the Malaspina Peninsula on the northern Sunshine Coast. Visitors and paddlers will enjoy the 4-hectare park's waterfront setting and small campground. There are hiking trails that wind through lightly forested uplands, and outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy swimming, fishing, diving and boating.

The park is the choice of paddlers intent on exploring Desolation Sound Marine Provincial Park, BC's largest marine park, and is also an ideal launching spot for kayakers who plan to paddle the sheltered waters of the Malaspina Inlet.

Divers can explore the Okeover Caves on the east side of Okeover Arm. The sheer rock wall descends straight down; there are two caves, the deeper is at 27 to 30 metres. There are facilities for divers in Lund that include dive-kayak rentals, charters and air fills.

Accessible from several points along the route, hikers can plan short day hikes, overnight hikes or longer multi-day hikes. It is strongly suggested that you obtain information about the trail (i.e. water, private property, wildlife, etc) before hiking any sections.

The Sliammon Nation offers a First Nations cultural experience. Native to the area, this west coast nation offers traditional canoe trips and longhouse ceremony with meal.

Purchase a Tidal Waters Sport Fishing Licence and try your hand at picking oysters or digging clams on the beach at Okeover Inlet. From the shore, several oyster farms can be identified by their white floats across the Inlet.

With the warmest waters north of the Baja Peninsula, local scuba diving boasts excellent visibility and truly abundant sea life. Night dives can be spectacular, especially for octopus enthusiasts.

Basically Okeover and Lund are places to get away from it all, relax, unwind and take a deep breath of fresh ocean air.

History :

For centuries the Lund area was seasonally inhabited by the Coast Salish people where they enjoyed the abundance of berries and shellfish.

Lund was first settled by Charlie Thulin (too-lin) in 1889 and he named Lund after his hometown in Sweden. He built the first shack on the harbour and started trading with the Natives. Six months later his younger brother, Fred, joined him. Fred was in his late-teens and didn’t speak English so when Charlie went to pick him up at the Union Steamship dock he discovered young Freddie had a shipping tag tied to his arm.

While they were logging the area they discovered a demand for accommodations so they built the Malaspina Hotel on the site where Dave’s Parking is currently located. It later burned down so a new hotel was built where the current Lund Hotel now stands. As an interesting note, while they were demolishing the remains of the Malaspina Hotel a skeleton was found in the cement pad under the front steps.

In 1929 the local residents wanted to build a community hall. They formed the Lund Community Club and beachcombed some logs. John Arpana on Sevilla Island had a mill and he milled the logs for the cost of the fueled that powered the mill. He also kept some of the lumber for building boats.

The people of Lund started building the community hall in 1929 and it was accomplished completely by volunteers. It had a hardwood floating dancefloor, banquet kitchen and lower level. The Thulins donated the property to the Community Club but unfortunately the property exchange was never registered so when the Thulins later sold the property, the community hall was sold with it. Today the old hall still stands uphill from the Lund Hotel but in a sad state of repair and no longer usable.

Charlie moved to Campbell River and built the Willow Hotel which also later burned down. Freddie married Eda who was also from Sweden.
