We stopped at the pier as part of a casual walking tour of downtown Campbell River. The pier has a small walk-up restaurant that offers good coffee and very good ice cream. We have been told that the fish and chips are great, but can't comment as we did not get them. The pier gives you a good and interesting... More

Great Ice Cream and Fish and Chips. Very convenient. You can get your fishing license and rent poles right on the pier. We didn't catch any salmon but had a fun day. It does not cost to just walk on the pier.

...is it really an attraction? You can get ice-cream and snacks there and, if you are an avid fisherman it probably a nice place to fish. Clean and well maintained. We spent 10 minutes there before the kids were bored.

If you are in Campbell River, I think you can't miss it! Take a stroll on the pier and LATER have your ice cream. I guarantee you, that is the best way to go!! If you take your ice cream with you on the pier, it will be all over you!! Yes, the wind does that!!

What a great pier to go for a walk on it played a great part in the history of Campbell River. We walked the whole pier saw people fishing, you can rent a pole right there. We saw seals in the water. We had the best ice cream cone but if you order one ask for the baby it is... More

This pier is found from the parking lot of the Mariner Museum. Walk out on the pier and enjoy ice cream cones or snacks. Rent a fishing pole and try to catch a salmon. One salmon around 45 pounds was caught there last year. Cruise ships will fill your view as they pass by. Working tugs hauling freight to and... More
