Traveling to Painters Lodge wk of 8/19-8/24. Is there a nightlife? Any info on day trips would be helpful. Thanks

Without any disrespect to Campbell River, Campbell River isn't exactly a place where you'd go for the nightlife. Vancouver Island, generally, is less of a nightlife place. Pubs, sure, but not really a nightclub type place with exception to Victoria.

There are a few spots in Campbell River worth checking out.

Although I'm sure the name has changed, there was a club called Animals right downtown that had a great atmosphere, and a pretty happening dance floor..I saw Nickelback there a few years ago. There was also a really cool pub on the water (on your right hand side) as you drive into Campbell River from the South. I can't remember the name, but it was upstairs, and really popular with the locals.

I spent a three-day weekend there with friends, and had a really great time.

For a day trip, take the ferry across to Quadra (10 minutes), maybe hire a bike, and see some of the island. It's Vancouver Island in miniature - mountains, wonderful coastal scenery, eagles etc. Also a number of local artists and sculptors - you'll find local info once you're there or there's stuff on the web.

Travel Tips for Campbell River

Campbell River

by tayloretc

I don’t have a lot to say about Campbell River – I only stopped there for an afternoon to go on a wildlife viewing tour (there seem to be a lot that operate from here). I had chosen one based on a flyer I picked up somewhere (see Things to Do). It’s so beautiful I doubt it matters where you go, but a lot of the wildlife tours seem to focus on the mainland coast just north of Campbell River.

"Hollywood North & Salmon Capital of the World!"

The beauty of Elk Falls has been the back drop to many feature films...namely "The Thirteenth Warrior" starring Antonio Banderas and Disney's "Eaters of the Dead".

BC is known widely in the film industry as "Hollywood North" and the film industry is growing quite rapidly here. Campbell River and the surrounding areas were also featured exclusively in the blockbuster "Final Destination II".

You can wander around the park and even swim in the smaller falls located above this picture.

The fishing is world class here, apparently, with many a derby to take part in if you wish. I haven't been myself in this part of Vancouver Island but it claims to be the "Salmon Capital of the World" so... you'll have to see for yourself! It certainly is a beautiful part of the island.

"Movie "Eaters of the Dead""

This picture shows a bridge being constructed on the movie set of Disney's "Eaters of the Dead" during filming located at Elk Falls, north of Campbell River, BC.

Campbell River–Salmon fishing at its best

by Darby2

Campbell River is situated on Vancouver Island about 160 km north of Nanaimo. Discovery Passage separates it from nearby Quadra Island and the mainland. North of Cambell River, the passage constricts into Seymour Narrows, one of the most trecherous sections of water on the coast. Ripple Rock, a dangerous navigation hazard in the middle of the narrows was blasted out of here in 1958. Captain George Vancouver described the narrows as "the vilest stretch of water in the world". For good reason too... Ripple Rock came within 9' of the surface and destroyed many ships by ripping open their hulls and sucking them down in huge whirlpools. The remains of rock are now about 45' below the surface but the currents are still very dangerous.

For the salmon fishing enthusiast, nothing conjures up the word better than Campbell River. Here my friend Jim hoists a freshly caught spring (Chinook) salmon caught just off the Cape Mudge lighthouse. Other species include steelhead, coho and pink.

"Orca, Killer Whale"

This big male killer whale was battering a big sea lion as we approached it in the middle of Seymour Narrows. Needless to say, the orca won the battle. The dorsal fin is about 7 feet high and the whale is about 28 feet long.
