Come and stay at this cozy bed and breakfast! It is a short distance to downtown shops, pier and harbour. There are many nearby hiking trails including Elk Falls and Strathcona Park. There is so much to do: golf, beach time, boat tours, salmon fishing, mini golf and skiing at Mount Washington in season.
Campbell River is a coastal city in British Columbia on the east coast of Vancouver Island at the south end of Discovery Passage, which lies along the important coastal Inside Passage shipping route.
Things To Do
Sports fishing here where salmon congregate en masse continues to draw rod-and-reel purists. For just the cost of a license, fish off the public pier downtown. Stand alongside the anglers in the Campbell River. Or chase the big ones with a professional guide. Adventure tour companies bring the region's Orcas, grizzly bears, and marine life into camera range on wildlife viewing outings in spring, summer, and fall.
Visiting boaters can utilize moorage in the deep-water Discovery Harbour Marina near the mouth of the Campbell River. Sailors bunking down at the Coast Discovery Inn tie up at the hotel's own marina. The Quadra Island Port Authority offers public moorage at its Quathiaski Cove and Heriot Bay wharfs. And there is a pretty marina at Brown's Bay just north of Seymour Narrows' surging tides. Boaters who birdwatch linger near Mitlenatch Island, a dry, rainshadow-protected home to the largest seabird colony on BC's west coast (offshore from Black Creek south of town).
More Water Activities
Destiny River Adventures takes groups (family and adult-only) to the Nimpkish River for thrilling whitewater rafting. Swimmers can splash about in town at the year-round Strathcona Recreation Complex (225 South Dogwood) or the outdoor Centennial Pool (4th and Alder). Or dip into frisky cold waters at Buttle Lake in Strathcona Provincial Park or the Campbell River itself (where several local companies enable groups to swim with migrating salmon).
Park the car downtown and explore Campbell River's waterfront on foot. Retail shops, restaurants, and the Campbell River Art Gallery line Shopper's Row beginning at the Tyee Plaza (site of the Visitor Centre). It leads into the Pier Street Historic Mile, a series of early and mid-20th century buildings adjacent to the Government Wharf, Discovery Pier and the Maritime Heritage Centre (home to the historic BCP45 fishing boat).
