• Top 5 Things To Do on a Campbell River Golf Trip

    Get away from the every day and back to nature with a trip to Campbell River, located on the eastern shores of Vancouver Island. Travel by air, car, or ferry to arrive at the rugged and wild coast where you’ll discover family-friendly pursuits, outdoor adventures, and some of the best golf courses in British Columbia. It’s all waiting, and we have some suggestions on things to do when visiting Campbell River for a golf vacation.

    Campbell River BC Families

    Fun for Families

    A golf vacation can include your family regardless of destination, and Campbell River is no exception. If they’re not golfing with you, finding something to do for a few hours is a breeze – stroll along the beach on the Rotary Sea Walk where they’ll see tons of interesting sights and ample wildlife – you can even plan your own scavenger hunt to see how many driftwood sculptures you can find. Take a trip to Holly Hill Farm to pet the roaming baby animals, or visit the Discovery Passage Aquarium to learn about local ocean life – it’s located right next to Discovery Pier and a perfect spot to grab an ice cream and enjoy the view!

    Family Activities Campbell River BC

    For golf-loving families, an afternoon spent in the Velocity Lounge at Campbell River Golf & CC is a terrific time – you’ll all get to practise your swings in the comfort of your private lounge and enjoy some delicious food. Combine golf with a fun ferry ride by taking the family over to Quadra Island for 9-holes of golf hiking and a day at the beach.

    Fishing BC Campbell River

    Fishing Mecca

    Campbell River is synonymous with exceptional fishing opportunities, with the temperate climate allowing a year-round sport fishing season and plenty of professional guides around to show you the best place to drop a line.

    Visit Destination Campbell River’s Fishing Page for more resources including catch schedules and available charters, or view our popular Fins ‘n Skins golf package for the best of both worlds and have all the details taken care of for you!

    Campbell River Wildlife Tours

    Marine & Wildlife Tours

    The wild coastal waters and riverways of Campbell River are teeming with wildlife and offer a truly remarkable experience for those interested in learning about the area’s natural resources and residents. A typical wildlife tour could have you out on the Salish Sea spotting humpback whales, orcas, dolphins, seals and sea lions, or travelling closer to shore to find grizzly bears, bald eagles, deer, elk, and over 250 species of birds. Remember to pack your camera and visit Campbell River Whale Watching & Adventure Tours to inquire about current tours and timing.

    Hiking Campbell River

    Get Lost & Find a Trail

    When you truly want to get back to nature and leave the world behind, a good trail is likely only a short distance away in Campbell River. Find hiking trails in Elk Falls Provincial Park, Beaver Lodge Forest Lands, Tyee Spit and Miracle Beach Provincial Park, or embark on the Rotary Sea Walk for a paved and flat stroll (or ride) with interesting driftwood sculptures along the way.

    Bikers will find some of the best cross-country terrain in the province here, with both self-guided and tours available. Take on over 100km of treed singletrack in Snowden Demonstration Forest, flowy and technical singletrack on Pumphouse Trails, and a range of trails on Beaver Lodge Lands.

    Golf Campbell River

    Golf Galore

    With four featured golf courses making up the Vancouver Island Golf Trail in this region, a weekend visit might not be enough to experience Campbell River golf plus fit in some classic activities like those mentioned above. We’d highly recommend carving out a day just to fit in a wildlife or fishing tour, or to explore trails and Campbell River’s downtown area. In between, you can enjoy BC’s newest golf course, Campbell River Golf & CC, the feeling of golfing in a forest at Storey Creek Golf Course, classic Vancouver Island mountain views at Crown Isle Golf Course, and a peaceful 9-hole round (plus fun ferry ride) at Quadra Island Golf Course.

    Experience all this and more with a golf trip to Campbell River – start by browsing golf packages, download the Vancouver Island Golf Guide, to plan your trip, or let our golf vacation experts assist with building a custom Campbell River golf package.

    This (Bear Mountain Resort – Mountain Course, on the Vancouver Island Golf Trail) is my new favourite golf course – I just love the layout. It’s really one of the prettiest golf courses I’ve played in my life, I’ll come back here on vacation, it’s that good.

    Scott McCarron, PGA TOUR Champion

    I always treat golf courses as how many poor holes there are. This (Bear Mountain Resort – Mountain Course, on the Vancouver Island Golf Trail) is a very good one. There’s not one poor hole on this golf course.

    Colin Montgomerie, PGA TOUR Champion

    Great job on the initial booking and subsequent changes requested. Easy check-in at the golf courses and the hotel made the trip hassle-free. Nice touch with the driving directions and discounts at recommended food and beverage establishments. Will definitely recommend your service to friends and business associates.
