    Nice mix of trails of varying length to suit all users. Good shoreline vistas (and yes there were a number of seals). Also good trails through the woods

    A very very nice scenic area along the Puntledge river and a very very nice and cool place to sunbath and relax but I strongly recommend being very careful swimming in the river because of very strong currents and undertows.

    A very very good and a very very nice and a very very scenic park to walk or ride your bike around or just relax at and watch the birds but I recommend staying out of that park after dark.

    Amazing visit. A must see if in Courtney. The staff was very friendly and informative. Such a cool concept - making spirits from honey. The raspberry gin is the most spectacular and an absolute must purchase. When COVID ends and the bar reopens, it will be even better to go have a cocktail.

    We spent a nice half hour here in a cloudy cool day in July. It was a nice place to spend a little time and th exhibits were varied. My husband liked the fossils, and I liked the quilts. Not sure what our ten year old liked, but he seemed entertained.

    Easy access one way in or at the end of a long set of trails along the Puntledge River it's a fascinating trip. Starting in late August and through to early October watching the salmon head upriver for spawning is amazing. At the hatchery seeing the salmon stacked six feet deep and twenty feet wide at the spawning grounds is a must see for nature lovers.

    We visited this gallery because I had seen the jewelery online and was looking to replace my lost wedding ring. The gallery is filled with the most beautiful examples of west coast Indigenous artistic creations. The people in the store were so friendly and helpful, and provided us with the background of each of the artists. We found the perfect ring and are looking forward to a return visit. Highly recommended!!

    A beautiful and peaceful setting for a glass of vino. The whites were our fav's but that could have had something to do with the rather hot temperature.
    We didn't have a reservation so we were not able to do a tasting but were able to sit at a picnic table with a couple of bottles.
    Great friendly service as well!

    Often used by retired locals from Courtenay and Comox, this is a great site by the Salish Sea with most campsites overlooking the rocky beach and looking east over towards Powell River on the mainland Sunshine Coast, an hour and a half's ferry ride away.

    Some spectacular sunrises amidst the many trees in the campground, including one massive cedar.

    A good place to park for a few days and scout the local areas.

    It feels safe, with the impression that other campers would keep an eye open for anyone who shouldn't be there.

    Not a great lot to do in the camp, a couple of walks and boat launches, but lots of interesting places and sites, from shopping to golf courses in the nearby communities.
