Campbell River - British Columbia

Campbell River, British Columbia, is located on the east coast of central Vancouver Island. Dubbed the Salmon Capital of the World, Campbell River is dominated by fishing, but the town is about much more than that. Along with the hatcheries and opportunities to snorkel with salmon come opportunities to experience First Nations culture at the Wei Wai Kum House of Treasures or to see the creativity of residents at craft shows and theatres.

The town is in an ideal location for sports and sightseeing. Strathcona Park lies to the west, while the east is bordered by the Coastal Mountain Range. Beyond are the Discovery Islands, where visitors can wander and explore the beauties of nature. In the town, the sea is a major attraction, with all kinds of water sports available. Discovery Pier is one of Campbell River’s most interesting sights, with 182 metres of scenic views and fishing space.

The whole family can enjoy a visit to Campbell River. Bazaars and the annual Toy and Craft Sale are fun for all ages, and the annual trip of salmon through Discovery Passage to their spawning grounds is a highlight of the year. The Cape Mudge Lighthouse is a popular tourist attraction, and the town’s concerts, plays, and other activities help to entertain locals and visitors. With so much to do and see, Campbell River is a good place to experience the life and culture of Vancouver Island.
