Bamberton Provincial Park is a provincial park located in Mill Bay, British Columbia, Canada. The park area consists of a beach that borders on Saanich Inlet, and is connected to a camping area by several trails. The traditional name of the beach is qʷələs in the Saanich dialect.[2] It shares its name with the now abandoned company town of Bamberton.

The park was established by Order-in-Council in 1960, with an area of approximately 68.94 hectares (170.4 acres). It was reduced in size in 2004 to 28 hectares (69 acres).[3]
