We only had 2 nights in Campbell River and did a lot of fishing up the river itself just out of town for Pink Salmon which was amazing, plus a black bear came down to the river for a visit- a real highlight. Discovery Pier does see nice chunky salmon caught-we saw one about 10 pound brought in-but you need fairly heavy gear given the swift currents through this area. A nice place for a stroll along the waterfront also.

Decided to take a walk along the pier on a beautiful sunny afternoon whilst staying in Campbell River. It was at the weekend and in the car park was a lovely market full of local produce and crafts. After strolling around the stalls we decided to take a walk along the pier, stopping off at the cafe to buy a fabulous ice cream cone. Its a lovely old fashioned wooden pier with great views out to sea. We visited during the Humpback Whale season and you could watch their waterspouts and the tour boats rushing out to view the whales from the pier. As you walk along there are a lot of fishing seats along the pier many with plaques on them and it was very interesting to read all of the dedications. It is a popular spot for fishermen, and they were all very happy to have a chat and talk of the ones that got away. A lovely spot on a sunny day to have a walk and while away a couple of hours

Wonderful place to rent a rod....cast a line... and chat with other fishers. Karen was great.. lots of advice ... ice cream was tasty and the boat dock were open so we could walk around and get up close views of hundreds of working boats.

Lovely pier to spend sometime on. Nice length and wide to accommodate many people. There’s a snack stand called Discovery Fishing Pier Ice Cream Shop, to buy some food and drinks or rent a fishing rod. If you do plan on doing some fishing you’ll need to buy a day fishing license. The closest place to the pier to purchase is at Tyee Marine fishing and outdoors shop. From there you can rent a rod by the hour and try to land yourself a salmon from the Salmon Capital of the World. All together I paid a little less than $30 for all of it. No pets or smoking on the pier.

This pier has everything, cleaning and washing stations, covered picnic benches, rod holders, parking and a place to get food and drinks as well. Did not catch anything, but watching the sunset, while fishing was so relaxing.
