This resort saved our trip. We were booked at another motel near the ferry docking and it just wasn't the island setting I had imagined. I called April Point and got one of their last rooms at an excellent rate. We ended staying an extra night to make 4 nights. It is not in Campbell River but on Quadra Island, a 10 minutes ferry ride. We had our car and drove all around. Make sure to visit Rebecca Spit Provincial park. The kids loved the rocky beach and rolling the big logs in the water and playing with them. There were lots of people enjoying this park. We also drove north and swam in a fresh water lake that was refreshing and simply breathtaking in the scenery. The great staff at April point directed us and were great hosts.
The accomodation is not high end luxery, but it is very clean, comfortable and offers great views. The food at both April Point and Painter's lodge (it's owned by the same company and you can access by a 10 minute boat ride that leaves every 30 minutes) was great. We saw a pod of killer whales come up the discovery strait while eating dinner at Painter's Lodge. We saw seals and bald eages at April Point. I can't think of a bad thing to say. Very small kids might not have a lot to do, but ours were 8 and 11 and loved it.
My husband went fishing which is very popular and loved the experience.
I would stay here again in a second if I was every lucky enough to come back to this incredible part of Canada.
