Campbell River, a city of about 30,000 people on northern Vancouver Island is packed with things to do. Since Campbell River is right near the ocean on the eastern side, there is a lot of water space, with docks all along the inlet. Probably the biggest tourist attraction, maybe even the most interesting, would be a trip to one of the main islands: Quadra Island or Hornby Island. Another rather interesting attraction would be the Maritime Heritage Center which will give you some great history, about Campbell River’s maritime history. Campbell river is located about 2 hours north of Nanaimo, or 3.5 hours north of Victoria.
