We left Rathtrevor Provincial Park on a rainy 20 degrees Celsius day and camped a for few days at Elk Falls Provincial Park near Campbell River on Vancouver island, British Columbia, Canada. It was the first time that we stayed there, we had a large site, surrounded by trees, there are many birds, we found it quite, fire wood is for sale and the staff is friendly. It was sunny and hot in town, but nice and cool under the trees.
Most fire-pits in Provincial Parks aren’t suitable for B.B.Q. so bring your own grill.
“A thundering waterfall and some of the finest year-round salmon fishing in Canada are just two of the reasons Elk Falls is one of the most popular provincial parks on Vancouver Island. Add to that the extensive network of forest trails, the nearby Quinsam salmon hatchery and, in the fall, the sight of spawning salmon in the Quinsam and Campbell Rivers, and it’s easy to see why this provincial park is considered one of the best campground accommodations in the “Salmon Capital of the World.””–B.C.Parks
One of our hammocks, you can read more about them here. Bugs weren’t a problem yet, as it was still early in the season.
There is no cellphone reception or wi-fi, but they are available in town at Starbucks, Staples, Mc Donalds (in Wal-Mart), etc. Close-by attractions are, Elk Falls and suspension bridge, Tyee spit, Strathcona Provincial Park, Discovery Fishing Pier, Ripple Rock, Quinsam Salmon Hatchery, Fanny Bay Oysters, etc.

“The lower 3-quart pan of the combo cooker can be used as a dutch oven, fryer, or even a skillet, while the lid can be turned over and put onto a burner or over a campfire and used as a griddle or skillet.”-Bass Pro
We used this Lodge Logic Combo Cooker the most, we turn the lid upside down to keep the cooked food warm, while cooking in the bottom part.
