SOMETHING FOR Proudly poised at Parallel 50, Campbell River sits at the crossroads of an unparalleled natural playground. The original latitude marker (N 50° 00.006 W 125° 13.829) was built in 1974. Campbell River shares this same north latitude with Sept Iles, Quebec; Plymouth, U.K.; Frankfurt, Germany; Prague, Czechoslovakia; Krakow, Poland; Kiev, Ukraine; Kamchatka Peninsula, Russia and the open Pacific Ocean.

The city enjoys a moderate climate year round which provides opportunities for adventure. We feel Campbell River has something for everyone. Rivers, lakes, rainforests, hiking trails, wildlife, snow capped mountains and gorgeous beaches are just a few marvels this area has to offer. We celebrate the rich history of this area as well as the arts and culture that have been passed down through generations.

SALMON CAPITAL

All roads lead to the fishing capital Campbell River, “the Salmon Capital of the World”, has earned its place at the top of the list of salmon fishing destinations. All five species of Pacific Salmon pass through the waters between Campbell River and the Mainland as they return to spawn in their native rivers. Campbell River is also the jumping off point for great West Coast open ocean fishing with Nootka Sound northwest of Gold River providing some of the best Chinook and Coho fishing on the entire coast of British Columbia. Campbell River is also proud to be the base of operations for many of the finest fishing guides in BC. For a full list of fishing guides drop into the Visitor Centre across from Shoppers Row and pick up a guide booklet.

Traditionalists will want to check out the Tyee Club of BC located on Spit Road. It began in 1924 with a group of anglers who returned to Campbell River each year in pursuit of the elusive Tyee, a Chinook salmon, 30 pounds or larger. Tyee fishing is done quietly in a small, classic row boat. No motors are allowed in the Tyee pool. The rower will slip the boat into the currents and eddies while keeping a basic plug or spoon beating in the current. If a fish is boated and weighs 30 pounds or more, the catch is recorded and the angler becomes a member of the Tyee Club.

LEGENDARY

The Campbell River is a user-friendly river to experience the joy of catch and release. Fish for trout year round and pink salmon later in the summer. The main fishing spots are easy to reach and the sandy pool sees anglers of all ages congregate and jockey for position to cast out lures or flies. Where the Quinsam River enters the

Campbell at times will have a heavy concentration of anglers. Between the bridges, is where most of the action takes place. In late September, the coho will be running and offers big action on a drift or fly rod. During the summer, Echo Lake can be fished with a fly or lure. Echo Lake is stocked twice a year with catchable sized trout.

Hiking Canyon View Trail– (6 kms) – This is

a well maintained loop trail that winds along the banks of the Campbell River. One highlight is an 80 foot suspension walkway that spans the canyon and offers spectacular views of rapids and spawning salmon.

Lady Falls – (1 km) – This easy 20 minute round trip walk to the falls is just past the Buttle Lake Campground on Highway 28. At the end of the path is a viewing platform directly across from the falls that receives some mist from the falls.

Lower Myra Falls – (1 km) – Beautiful

cascading waterfalls are the reward at the end of this short hike. You can climb up and down the falls and swim in some of the calmer pools. Travel Highway 28 and take Westmin Road south to the Lower Myra Falls parking lot.

Quinsam River Trail – (2 kms) – The trail starts at the playground area in the Elk Falls campground and follows the Quinsam River upstream. The Quinsam Salmon Hatchery is approximately 2 km from the campground. Bedwell Lake Trail – (about 4 hours)

Located in Strathcona Provincial Park this day use trail has an elevation gain of 600 metres. It ascends through a steep forested valley with some stairs and bridge crossings. At the top is a subalpine area with two lakes. Beware of the presence of black bears in this area. Access the trailhead from the south end of Buttle Lake.

Crest Mountain Trail – (10 kms) This

physically demanding trail is steep with an elevation change of 1300 metres, but the views of Kings Peak and Elkhorn Mountain make it well worth the effort. To get to the trailhead follow Highway 28.

Strathcona Park Strathcona Park is the largest and oldest provincial park on Vancouver Island – founded in 1911. The park is home to the highest peaks of the Vancouver Island Ranges. From the Golden Hinde to Mount Albert Edward, people come from all over the world to explore this outdoor mecca. For beginners seeking that first toe hold to seasoned veterans pushing their limits, the park offers topography that ranges from inviting to downright scary. The main access to the Park is via Highway 28. The main access route to Forbidden Plateau from Courtenay and Campbell River is via the Paradise Meadows Trailhead at Mount Washington. Crest Creek Crag is another favourite. The local climbing community maintains the routes regularly offering expert climbs and some routes for beginners. The Crest Creek climbing area is located near Crest Lake and Crest Creek on Hwy 28 (to Gold River). There are 19 crags with names like Black Crag, Pipeline Bluff, Narcissus Wall and Skid Row. Gravel roads and short hiking trails from the parking lot lead climbers to the crags. Combine the crags and there are over 100 different climbing routes.

Camping Bursts of moonlight bouncing off a rippling lake, campfire sparks rising on the heat like miniature fireworks, kids turning marshmallows into flaming balls of sugar – summer camping is great just about anywhere. Here it’s awesome. In the lake dotted hills west of Campbell River there are more campgrounds than you can explore in a lifetime. A good place to start is Elk Falls Provincial Park where a thundering waterfall, an extensive network of forest trails and the nearby Quinsam salmon hatchery make it one of the best campground accommodations in the Salmon Capital of the World.

Just two kms from downtown it provides quiet riverside camping. After a morning fishing, pack a picnic lunch and take a cool stroll to the Elk Falls day-use area and wander through the only significant stand of oldgrowth Douglas fir north of MacMillan Provincial Park. Other more remote camp grounds that should be high on your list of options include Loveland Bay and Morton Lake. For more information of the area campgrounds, and to reserve a spot well ahead of time, go to: www.env.gov.bc.ca/bcparks and follow the “find a park” prompts at the right hand top of the home page.

This quiet mode of travel often allows you to get closer to marine and land wildlife than if you were on foot or in a motorized craft. Bring your own kayak or rent one from a local shop, lessons and guides are available. You can chart your own journey or sign up for an eco-tour. Canoeing is also popular-the Sayward Forest Canoe/ portage route is a 50 kilometre (30 mile) circuit encompassing 11 lakes, and takes approximately 3-4 days to complete the full circuit. We recommend doing the route counter-clockwise from summer to early fall. Numerous B.C. Forest Service Recreation sites are located along the route that provide adequate overnight camping facilities. Popular put-in spots are: The Campbell River Spit, Gosling Bay on Campbell Lake, Morton Lake, Strathcona Dam, Loveland Bay, Forbes Landing and McIvor Lake.

Biking The Campbell River region, with its superb terrain, is blessed with numerous mountain biking trails that range from easy family tracks to difficult back country trails that will challenge the toughest rider. Close to the city is the Pump House Trail, located between Iron River Road and the Campbell River, features easily accessible, well-marked single-track trails. Get onto Highway 28 and turn onto the Duncan Bay Main and cross the Campbell River. You’ll find one trailhead just south of the intersection of Duncan Bay and Iron River Road and another located west of Duncan Bay Road on Iron Bay Road. The Snowden Demonstration Forest west of Campbell River and north of Highway 28 near Loveland Bay Provincial Park offers more than 30kms of trails suited to all levels of expertise and includes the Frog Lake and Lost Lake trail systems. Trails are usually 2 to 8 kms and frequently intertwine. Some of the easier routes follow old rail beds that have been rehabilitated as recreational trails. Beginners should check out the Beaver Lodge Lands near the North Island College campus. Old rail grades, logging roads and hiking tracks make for an enjoyable tour through tall trees.

Golfing We have beautiful golf opportunities here and around Campbell River. Storey Creek Golf Club, just minutes south of Campbell River on Highway 19A, is consistently ranked in the top-10 public courses in BC, and has been ranked the number one public course by the PGA of BC. Quadra Island Golf, one of the newest courses on the West Coast, first opened for play in 2012, and it is truly a welcome addition. Rainbow’s End Golf Course & Club House, just outside Sayward, is a fun little 9-hole track that has the casual, laid back attitude of a tortoise basking in the sun – and that’s a compliment. Gold River GCC, nestled along the banks of the river that shares its name, is another one of the distinctly, “hard to focus on your game with all this beauty around,” courses the region has to offer, and Sequoia Springs Golf Course, the only course within the municipal boundaries of Campbell River itself, has a beauty all its own to go along with its accessibility, along with one of the most beautiful full-service clubhouses on Vancouver Island. Whichever course you choose to play, you’re sure to remember your round for years to come.

A unique flavour of natural beauty.

Shoreline Arts This summer marks 20 years since Max Chickite carved Octi, the octopus out of a piece of driftwood. One man’s imagination is now a five day competition, featuring up to 30 carvers creating works of art out of raw cedar logs. Every year in June, large logs are delivered to Frank James Park in Willow Point. The carvers meet up to review the rules and safety requirements, and to choose their logs. The howl of the chainsaws starts and lasts until 7 pm, and eager spectators often visit daily to see what emerges. By the weekend, most of the logs are almost completely transformed into whatever the carvers have imagined. On the Saturday, there is a quick carve contest where carvers have an hour to transform smaller logs, and the results are then auctioned off to the public, with the carver sharing in the proceeds. On the Sunday, most carvings are painted and varnished, and ready for judging. The public gets to vote for their favourite as well, but our expert consultants (professional carvers themselves), make the decision as to which carvings win the cash prizes in each category. Sunday is also the day of the raffle. First prize is The Pick of The Park – the winner gets to choose whichever carving they prefer. Remaining carvings then are adopted by sponsoring companies or individuals to enjoy. So if you would like a carving, either buy the winning raffle ticket, be the most generous sponsor for second choice, or buy a quick-carve at auction! 26

Elk Falls Campbell River’s newest attraction spans the roaring Elk Falls and offers breathtaking views of one of the area’s jewels. The 60-metre long footbridge is suspended 64 metres above the canyon floor and takes you up above the falls; when the wind blows just right, you can feel the mist coming off the falls. Since opening to the public in May of 2015, there have been 195,000 visitors to Elk Falls Park, inclusive of the new suspension bridge, the new trail areas established to link the new parking lot to the bridge, and two viewing platforms that offer iconic views of Elk Falls. A further 19,000 have gone through BC Hydro’s John Hart Interpretive Centre located in the Elk Falls Parking lot. The Elks Falls Suspension Bridge is a legacy of the Campbell River Rotary Club. The project was funded through Rotary dollars, and grants from the federal government, Island Coastal Economic Trust, and BC Hydro which also shared environmental and geo-technical reports with Rotary to help make the project possible.

Sea Walk Campbell River’s Rotary Seawalk is like the city’s front deck. It’s where Campbell Riverites gather on a sunny summer day and stroll along the waterfront. When not shooting the breeze with old friends on this popular path, you will see residents walking along the shores of Discovery Passage their faces lifted up to the beautiful vista of sea, islands and mountains. From Hidden Harbour in the north to Willow Point and beyond in the south, the Seawalk stretches along the community’s waterfront. On the way you can watch boats being launched or stop and have a cup of coffee. You can also see salmon in Willow Creek, eagles in the trees and, if you’re lucky, see killer whales and schools of dolphins and porpoises out in the water. The Seawalk is also popular with cyclists and rollerbladers with families going for a ride getting some exercise.

Quadra & Cortes Island There’s nothing like a short ferry ride across Discovery Passage to transport you to a magical dimension in West Coast living. Welcome to Quadra Island and its neighbour Cortes Island just beyond. The measure of isolation these communities enjoy infuses them with unique characters and characteristics. Eclectic old timers, artists and artisans, First Nations people, retired and young families all share a pride of community and embrace a quality of stewardship that rubs off on all who visit. Quadra Island boasts crystal clear waters, spectacular scenery and sandy beaches attracting many to Rebecca Spit for day picnics or overnight camping. Kayaking, beach-combing, swimming, nature hikes, snorkeling – Quadra also offers an extensive network of hiking and mountain biking trails that wind through lush rainforest and up exquisite moss-covered bluffs. Visitors are drawn to the many special events and ceremonies during the year at the Nuyumbalees Cultural Centre where the heritage and history of the We-Wai-Kai Band is vibrant and alive. Both Quathiaski Cove and Heriot Bay have a good selection of stores and services for

visitors including groceries, pharmacy, post office, liquor store, banking, gas station, guide outfitters, gift shops, rentals, pubs, cafés, restaurants, and public docks. Visitors on foot should check out the water taxi from Painter’s Lodge just north of Campbell River to April Point Lodge. Cortes Island – This jewel is just a 40-minute ferry crossing from Quadra through idyllic islands surrounded by snowcapped mountain peaks. Cortes Island is covered by forest, blessed with sandy beaches, sunshine and a temperate climate. The island’s central location at the top of Georgia Straight puts it right in the middle of a naturally occurring rain shadow. Warmer air and water temperatures make for great summertime swimming at Hague Lake, Smelt Bay Provincial Park, or on the sweeping sandy beaches of nearby Marina Island. Accommodation includes provincial and private campgrounds, cabins, and motels. There are restaurants, cafés, grocery stores and banking at Manson’s Landing, Gorge Harbour and Squirrel Cove. For more information go to: quadraisland.ca and cortesisland.com.

Bear Safety Bears are wild animals that are dangerous and unpredictable. Do not approach bears or allow them to approach you. Treat bear encounters with extreme caution! If you see a bear: Remain watchful. Do not approach it. Do not allow the bear to approach you. If your presence causes the bear to change its behavior (stops feeding, changes its travel direction, watches you, etc.) you are too close. Don’t run, but slowly back away, watching the bear. Increase the distance between you and the bear. Don’t leave food for the bear; this encourages further problems.
