We like to go there to watch the salmon jump, and when we want a short hike close by, rich in natural beauty.

We went for a walk(about 20min one way) down to the river. We could see some salmon schooling around before going up the rapid stream. The forest was very nice with some colouful maple leaves. My 2 kids, 10yrs and 13yrs loved it.

We arrived a couple weeks too soon as the salmon were just starting to attempt breeching the falls. There was about one large salmon making a leap against to cascading water every couple minutes. One person said they were congregating down river in larger numbers working their way upstream. I would have loved to have timed my visit when they... More

Small waterfall and possibility to see salmon jumping upstream. Stays wonderfull to see each time. If you are in the neighbourhood of Port Alberni during the salmon run, take the effort to visit this small park...

I suppose timing is everything but if you are here during salmon season, this place is fantastic. The river is alive and wild and there are several spots to closely watch the salmon trying to jump up some roiling rapids. The area itself is a very beautifully wooded spot as well. Highly recommend...one of our favorite attractions during our stay... More

Wish we could have stayed longer than one night. Say a bear trying to catch salmon within 5 mins of arriving! Hired an RV. Peaceful water flowing 24/7. Plenty of room between pitches. Can't wait to go again - $22pn bargain.

Didn't expect such a beautiful sight. The water is cool, clean and clear. Worth the side trip from anywhere to view this beautiful river and breath taking falls. Bit of a hilly gravelly trail and need to be in a bit of shape.

We had no idea the park was even here. Our B&B host told us about this hidden gem, which is only a 15 minute drive from down town Port Alberni. We loved watching the Salmon jump. The campground is quiet with a lot of trees and privacy
