The beautiful community of Campbell River is located on the east coast of central Vancouver Island between Strathcona Park, to the west, and the Discovery Islands, to the east. It is a growing city located on the frontier of BC’s spectacular wilderness. Renowned as the Salmon Capital of the World, Campbell River is nestled in a region rich in natural resources, scenic beauty and an incredible variety of wildlife. One of the four main fishing centers on Vancouver Island, the city is internationally famous for both its ocean and freshwater fishing and the year-round salmon fishing in Discovery Passage is unmatched. Visitors marvel at the array of natural beauty and the variety of outdoor activities this region has to offer. Raw beauty and pristine wilderness less than 4 hours from the booming metropolises of Vancouver or Victoria make Campbell River one of the most desirable destinations in British Columbia.
