The power of nature is awe-inspiring at Strathcona Provincial Park, just north of Campbell River.
A scenic city on the eastern shore of Vancouver Island, Campbell River is celebrated for its natural beauty, coastal lifestyle, and outdoor opportunities. It is also a gateway to some of the most well known wilderness areas in Canada.

Strathcona Provincial Park, the first official nature reserve in British Columbia, is famous for its old-growth trees. The surrounding mountain peaks create beautiful vistas and Discovery Passage offers sightings of many species of wildlife, including the salmon that make Campbell River so famous. While sport fishing brings many people to the area, there are endless other opportunities for adventure.
The multitude of shore excursions include sightseeing, river rafting, golfing, swimming, picnicking and much more. And while Campbell River is renowned for its eco-tourism, there is no lack of shopping, dining and entertainment. The many museums in Campbell River reflect the artistic, social and industrial past of northern Vancouver Island. They also showcase a time when First Nations people lived in the area before Europeans settled here.
