Strathcona Provincial Park offers picnicing, fishing, camping and more experienced hikes to the Comox Glacier; Della Falls, the highest waterfall in Canada; and the Golden Hinde, at 2200 metres is the tallest peak on Vancouver Island.
Kwkiutl and Laich-kwil-tach First Nations lay claim to their home lands here along the shores of Vancouver Island in the area named today Campbell River first settled by the Wewaykum tribe.
