Cloud formations drift amongst the mountain peaks and hover above the lush evergreen forest that surrounds the Clayoquot Arm. The forest continues down to the shore of the large Kennedy Lake while the beautiful mountain scenery reflects on the lake's calm waters.
Kennedy Lake is at the convergence of the Clayoquot River and the Kennedy River and is the largest lake on Vancouver Island. The lake is popular among fishermen with its various species of trout and salmon. The lake is also protected from the logging industry because of the area's natural beauty.
The lake borders along four provincial parks namely Clayoquot Plateau Provincial Park, Kennedy River Bog Provincial Park, Clayoquot Arm Provincial Park, and Kennedy Lake Provincial Park.
The lake is named after Sir Arthur Kennedy who was the last governor of the Vancouver Island colony. Sir Kennedy was governor for the British colonies. The colonies were Queensland, Vancouver Island, Hong Kong, Western Australia and Sierra Leone.
