The Goldstream Provincial Park is a nature enthusiasts paradise. There are two vegetation zones within the park where visitors can walk under a canopy of trees such as Douglas fir, western red cedar, western yew, red alder, big leaf maple, western hemlock and black cottonwood. Shrubs and wildflowers such as salal, Oregon grape, red huckleberry, salmonberry, western trillium and calypso grow along the trail edges.

Thousands of chum, chinook and coho salmon spawn annually in the Goldstream River. This river was first named Gold Creek by Lieutenant Peter Leech who, in 1858, discovered gold in it. Old mining shafts and tunnels are found along the trails today.
