    We stopped at Elk Falls for a quick hike. It was beautiful. Easy to walk on paths. Didn't see any wild life which we wanted to but still gorgeous.  more »

    Beautiful park. Well kept. Not crowded and no littering. Suspension bridge is awesome and the trails are easy. Some steep areas but very manageable. Looks and feels and smells like heaven. Maybe 1.5 hours to do all walks and trails but leave more time to view the beautiful scenery and falls

    Nice hike broke into manageable pieces. Trails were well groomed with enough room for everyone walking. Great place to get a photo with a gigantic tree.

    Great walking options. Bridge and falls are only a short walk in for those not looking for a marathon hike. but it has several trails that take you further up the river if you wish to go longer.

    Always love camping here... feels like we are out in the bush.. but close enough to civilization if needed.

    The bridge is quite cool, but the park is also very developed. Extremely well maintained trail. Not a lot of rugged nature to be seen.

Where to stay in Campbell River

If you choose to stay in Campbell River itself, you'll likely find yourself in a friendly inn or guesthouse overlooking the estuary, where the river meets Discovery Passage. You can get a clearer view of the strait by staying on the coast, on the eastern side of town, where motels look across the water to Yaculta on the other side. Head farther south along Island Highway for even quieter coastal accommodations only a few minutes' drive from the local airport.
