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

When you park your car on the parking lot, you can't expect what you are going to see. After a 5 minutes little hike ( easy, can be done by children) you arrive at the falls. They are not big, they are not huge, they are just beautiful. Keep on hiking a little bit and if you look down, you... More

A quiet little park with a beautiful waterfall. A great place to watch the salmon making their journey upstream.

Beautiful river and gorgeous falls. Salmon flying up the falls. Breathtaking!!! Wonderful river side camping. Can float down the river for hours but you CANNOT enter from Stamp Falls. EXTREME DANGER at that point. Check with locals for launching and exit points and you will have the float of a life time!!!

Beautiful scenery and interesting fish ladders. We were there in February so enjoyed seeing parts of the river frozen. A real opportunity for great photos.

Enjoy a little hike along the Stamp River, go past the falls. They have fish ladders here so you can watch the fish get up past the falls. They also have TV screens set up to watch the fish actually travel through the fish ladders....Very interesting and a good outing for kids...

During the spring melt the river is running wild. The water is so high and backed up in the gorge below the falls that there isn't really a waterfall at all, just a raging torrent through the rocks. In the fall, the salmon are running upstream and you can watch them fight their way up the falls or watch them... More

Long hikes have their place, but if you want a short walk in the outdoors that provides variety and spectacle, then the walk along the Stamp River Falls is the one. We were there in early Spring, so no leaping fish - but a river in spate with the meltwater from the mountains. The path is broad and easy, with... More
