The following information about Elk Lake was sourced from CRD Website:
Elk Lake has been a key recreational resource for many decades. From the 1920s through the 1940s the lake was the focus of resort and water-based recreation. Elk/Beaver Lake was established as a regional park in 1966 and is a very high value community resource for recreation (swimming, boating, rowing), fishing, and general sightseeing and enjoyment. The lakes are stocked by the Ministry of Forests, Lands, and Natural Resource Operations with approximately 18,000 rainbow trout each year. A 10 km walking/running path around the lake is heavily used. The portion of the path on the west side of Elk Lake is open to bicycles and horses. CRD estimates that Elk/Beaver Lake Regional Park receives 1.5 million visitors per year (2015). The lake hosts two major triathlons, and is currently host to the Canadian National Rowing Team. Rowing Canada has plans to establish a permanent national training centre in North Cowichan at Quamichan Lake by October 2020. However, significant local rowing activity will continue at Elk/Beaver Lake in the future.
