I hate to share this place because it is such a quiet and peaceful delight. Everything, from the sound of the river, the birds and black bear scooping up salmon from the falls, to the well managed park. No "luxuries" of the man made kind, but we will definitely be back for more. Hated to leave, but the rains came…..

A little out of the way, but worth it to see the fish ladder. It was absolutely amazing to see sockeye salmon in the ladder and the river. It is only a short walk slightly downhill from the parking lot to the ladder. We were able to watch sockeye attempt to leap the "natural path" as well. Depending on the... More

Gorgeous spot for short hike; breathtaking views and thrill to see the salmon. Looks like a nice area to camp, with cautions re bears. Highly recommend.

Nice raw place, you can observe the salmon jump up the river. If you are feelng adventurous you can swim in the lake. If you take the trail to the water falls, there is a place you can sit right beside it. Wonderful peaceful place.

A 23 site campground located about 15 kilometers north of central Port Alberni. We used this place not only to see the water fall and the run of salmon up the falls and fish ladder, but also to explore the area. Port Alberni is a mill town, and tourist attraction. Tourism has improved considerably since I was last here many... More

Small campground by the river. Saw a black bear which was wonderful for me but if you don't like bears... Lots of salmon but no fishing allowed as they are trying to encourage the salmon spawning which is low due to less than average rainfall.

Gorgeous river hike and we were able to see the salmon as well. Several places at the river level to sit and enjoy the water. Great views from higher up.

What a thrill to see these salmon fight their way up the falls to spawn. We return again and again. A nice walk in gorgeous surroundings. One of Alberni Valleys best kept secrets.

We had only a short time to check out the falls, but it was worth every minute. The park is beautiful and they have done a great job giving you a look at these falls from every angle.
