2160 Campbell River Rd, Campbell River

Here is an opportunity to acquire one of the few properties with frontage on the famous Campbell River zoned for either personal or multi-family residential, just minutes from town yet surrounded by nature. Watch migrating salmon, kingfishers, eagles and other wildlife on the river from the property. The Campbell River is world famous for its salmon runs and is beautiful to observe year-round.

The 0.45 acre undeveloped property offers approximately 56ft of riverfront.

Zoning on the property is RM-1, which allows for a single-family home with or without a secondary suite as well as multi-family residences. This provides many options for development including low rise residences in multi-family complexes; two storey patio homes and town houses or lower profile apartment-style complexes.

While the highest and best use to maximize the potential of the land would be a multi-family development with up to 4 permitted dwellings on site, this site also provides a rare opportunity to create a riverfront residential estate in a spectacular setting that is close to town.

The property is generally level, with a slight downward slope at the riverside. The bank is approx. 5-6ft above the riverbed. The property has been mostly cleared and gravelled, with lawn at the river edge and some planted shrubbery along the eastern boundary. A wooden fence runs along the western property line. At the road entrance there is a gate and a large, earth-mounded barrier, providing privacy and some noise abatement.  Municipal services are already connected and available on site.

From this location it is a short walk to both the Canyon View walking trail along the Campbell River as well as the Elk Falls walking trails through the Quinsam Campground on the other side of the road. Downtown is only a two minute drive while a short drive west is a series of freshwater lakes, including the McIvor Lake swimming beaches and the Campbell Lake system leading into Strathcona Park, as well as popular mountain biking trails in the Snowden Forest.

The Campbell River is known for its salmon runs, with four species of Pacific salmon migrating up the river to spawn. The Chinook, Coho and Chum return on an annual basis and the Pinks run every second year. It’s very popular with anglers and this property would provide a front row seat to the migration, with salmon jumping out front 5 months of the year. Other popular activities include snorkel drifting down the river amongst the migrating salmon as well as tubing and rafting with small rafts. The migrating salmon attract an array of wildlife including bears and eagles.

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. Serving a city population of approximately 37,000, Campbell River is also the service centre for the communities on northern Vancouver Island. The city has all services and amenities, including a hospital, colleges, rec centres, museums, major shopping anchors and a wide variety of smaller shops and restaurants.

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 centres 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.
