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.

Lovely place to visit. It is peaceful and natural. Took pictures with the natural beauty. It is indeed a nice place to visit, especially in summer

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.

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,...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.

The gorge and falls in this park are very scenic but when the salmon are running up the river it is truly a natural wonder. Imagine a ferocious water fall and rapids with salmon leaping high out of the water in their attempts to make...More

This was one of our favourite places to be. Stamp River Falls were amazing. Tons of salmon and one lone bear looking for them. Easy walk. Would go again and again.

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
