Just 20 kms from Campbell River, this historic town is an agricultural hub. Farms produce much of the area’s best crops and livestock. Families find these farms especially interesting when visited as part of an interactive tour. Black Creek is also known for its several wineries that take advantage of the moderate Vancouver Island climate.
