Elk Falls Provincial Park is located west of Campbell River on central Vancouver Island, and is named for the 25-metre waterfall on the Campbell River that plunges over a rocky precipice into a rock-walled canyon below.
Visitors are attracted to Elk Falls Park for different reasons. Some come for the beautiful scenery, whilst others fly in for some of the finest year-round salmon fishing in the world.
Other attractions include magnificent forest trails, the nearby Quinsam River salmon hatchery and in autumn, salmon spawning in the Quinsam and Campbell Rivers. During late spring and through the summer, you can head to the tidal waters to fish the legendary chinook and feisty coho. Rainbow, cutthroat and Dolly Varden are stocked in the surrounding lake areas as spring progresses. From November to March, the steelhead run in the Quinsam River.
