  • I live near by. I take every visitor that comes to visit on this walk. You can make it a quick walk to the suspension bridge or explore the trails for a more lengthy hike. Whichever you choos, you won...  more »
  • I have visited this site many times. BC Hydro has a very informative visitor centre. The view of falls on the suspension bridge is spectacular. The trails are excellent and varied. 
  • Nice short walk with really nice views and waterfalls. The suspension bridge was fun and the waterfalls were amazing.

  • Sites away from the road very quiet. Sites spread out from each other to almost give them the "alone in the woods" feel. Staff friendly but not overbearing. You get a little better value for the 7 dollar wood than you can get just about anywhere locally. Potable water, trash and toilets very convenient. No overflowing trash cans. The operator Nicole was exceptional. We saw a sow and cub walking 100 meters along the river just on the other side of the river from our site, 35 meters from our tent, we watched her catch a salmon. I got to watch the cub climb a tree. All after walking down to the river from our site #4.
  • The little critter scurrying about doing what they have to do. The forest is nice and the water warm. Buy for now, tri to find some even neater stuff, like , i dont know, but it will be neat, like some shed pixie wings, apparently they drop every 100 year, pray tell said so.
  • Really gorgeous! And it was an easy hike. I saw seniors and toddlers doing the walk. The suspension bridge has some stairs so you'll to be able to do that.
  • Beautiful hike. A definite must see if your in Campbell River. Elk Falls campsite is okay!
  • This place is amazing ! It has new paths to walk on and new stairs and a big platform to walk out on over the falls to see them the view is truely a amazing it is a must see for sure !
