Campbell River is a coastal city in British Columbia on the east coast of Vancouver Island at the south end of Discovery Passage, which lies along the important Inside Passage shipping route. Campbell River has a population (2016 census) of 35,138 and has long been touted as "the Salmon Capital of the World". Campbell River and Region is in close proximity to the neighboring communities of Quadra and the Discovery Islands, Sayward, Oyster River, Gold River, Tahsis and Zeballos.


Nestled on the east coast of central Vancouver Island, Campbell River is easily accessible by land, sea, or air. No matter how you get here, British Columbia's island, sea, and snow-capped mountain scenery will highlight your journey.Travelling north on Highway 19 takes approximately 2 hours (153 kilometres / 95 miles) from Nanaimo or 3.5 hours (264 kilometres / 165 miles) from Victoria. When the Inland Island Highway was completed in 2001, it reduced driving time to Campbell River by an hour. See the most of Campbell River by exiting Highway 19 at the Miracle Beach exit, then continue north along Oceanside Route Highway 19A. (Motorcoach travel to Campbell River is available through Island Coach Lines.) If you prefer a fully serviced highway route, follow the starfish along the scenic Oceanside Route, Highway 19A. Look for the official "starfish" signs south of Parksville and at other exits along Highway 19. Why not travel north to Campbell River on the scenic Oceanside Route 19A, then head home via the Inland Island Highway 19?

Discover BC’s iconic wildlife, gather with friends and family, and experience how nature here can transform us all.
