Elk Falls Suspension Bridge

Prepare to have your breath taken away!

A thundering waterfall and some of the finest year-round salmon fishing in Canada are just two of the reasons Elk Falls is one of the most popular provincial parks on Vancouver Island. Include extensive networks of forest trails, the nearby Quinsam Salmon Hatchery and, in the fall, the sight of spawning salmon in the Quinsam and Campbell Rivers, and it’s easy to see why this is an area beloved by visitors and locals alike.

This favoured destination within Campbell River Region is a popular spot in any season. Be sure to share your images with #DiscoverCampbellRiver to be featured!
