Only came upon this place after a recommendation from the Port Alberni Visitors Centre. So glad we took their advice. The walk up to the falls and salmon ladder is beautiful but the sight of the salmon waiting in the pools and then attempting the...More

We really enjoyed visiting this park and could not resist spending an hour just watching the Falls and viewing all the salmon making their way through the fish ladder and upstream.

Yep, exactly what they said ^^, the road from the entrance to the parking lot is unpaved but solid. It does get pretty dusty behind the vehicles :) Beautiful area!

It takes 3 hours to drive from Victoria to Port Alberni. From Port Alberni to Stamp River Falls another 20 minutes. If you are camping, it is a wonderful place to set up right along the river. Beautiful and peaceful... More
