Quatse River Campground Vancouver Island

The campground is situated alongside the picturesque and peaceful Quatse River, which is a very active 🐟 fish spawning river.

Each evening we enjoyed walking and sitting along the river bank, watching the hundreds of 🐟 fish jumping from the water, in search of their evening meal!

Quatse River Port Hardy BC

At the time of our stay in July, the river was exceptionally low. This was due to a very long period of unusually dry weather. 

The river is generally much higher, as seen in the picture above. Further up the river you will find beautiful water holes, with fish jumping all over the place!

This is also a very popular feeding area for 🐻 black bears living in the surrounding forest.

Hike The Quatse River Loop and Estuary Trail

Quatse River Hiking Trails

Take in the beautiful scenery with an easy 🥾 2.5 km riverside loop, or side trail leading to a wildlife-viewing platform in the estuary.

As well, you can also venture straight into town, on a well-maintained community trail along the {Quatse River} and shoreline of – Hardy Bay.
