Lovely place to visit

After having tiring day at funeral I decided to visit Stamp River. It is a beautiful place to visit and have some relaxing moments. The river flow is amazingly nice and peaceful.

We only went to the area with the fish ladder on our drive to Tofino, so didn't have a lot of time, but it was a fantastic stop! Very good presentation explaining how the fish ladder works, I had to see it to understand it! Super cool that you could look inside it from the top and on a large... More

Fantastic place to watch the Salmon go up the river. There is a fish ladder with underwater video and you can also see the fish trying to jump the waterfall. The campground is nice and roomy with lots of privacy.

Wear good walking shoes, boots when it rains. Watch out for very slippery rocks if you are venturing off the path. Can be quite dangerous for everyone if you get close to the river.

People talk of the salmon jumping the falls, I will tell you of the POWER of the river, standing on the end of the fish ladder with the grating under your feet and in front of you is the river rushing and pounding by, the colours and the sounds were incredible. You can not explain the awesomeness of the water... More

At the park, we witnessed the salmon run with lots of salmon trying to jump upstream! We also spotted a black bear further downstream at a comfortable distance. Beautiful place overall, a must-see for any trip to Vancouver Island!

What a beautiful park to visit if you are in the Port Alberni area. We visited on a sunny day on Thanksgiving Weekend. The fish were everywhere in the water trying to get upriver. There was a lovely path along the river with many overlooks, and a place where you could walk on the iron grid and see the fish... More

We went here to watch the salmon jumping up the river to spawn. We were amazed at how many we saw and how exciting it was seeing them try to jump up the rapids. Really quite an amazing place.
