Campbell River, BC

Historically renowned as the "Salmon Fishing Capital of the World", this Vancouver Island community is surrounded by Strathcona Provincial Park to the west and the Coastal mountain range to the east. Set in this spectacular surrounding, the Campbell River area has much to offer the visitor.

Although the salmon fishing is incredible, visitors don't have to limit their fishing to the ocean, the area is home of a multitude of fresh-water lakes and river systems. Year-round fishing opportunities abound for the knowledgeable angler. Campbell River is ideally situated to take advantage of other recreational activities.

Strathcona Park offers spectacular scenery and challenging hiking trails. Desolation Sound is a favourite of boaters, and the warm, sheltered waters offer excellent kayaking. Mt. Washington, nearby, has been transformed into a year round destination for skiers, biker, horseback rider or hiker. Snorkel tours of the area are a popular and unique idea as are the whale watching tours that are available.

Whether you come to browse through the many historic sites of the town, enjoy the local and native craft displays or take advantage of the many recreational activities available in the area, Campbell River has something to suit all tastes.
