We welcome you to venture into the wilderness, to roll up your sleeves and explore, to be stunned by nature. Become one with the water. Listen to the tales of the trees. Embrace the spirit of the wilderness. Painter’s Lodge is a resort that will awe every single time.
Neighbouring Vancouver Island’s Campbell River community, on the banks of Discovery Passage, stands the legendary Painter’s Lodge – a fishing resort welcoming international visitors since 1929. Explorers, apply here. Adventurers, drop your bags. Creatives, unleash your supplies. You’ll find what you’re looking for at this world-famous resort in beautiful British Columbia. Allow us to introduce you to the wild, on and off our expansive grounds.
Known as the Salmon Capital of the World, the waters surrounding Painter’s Lodge are brimming with ancient heritage and tradition. Salmon are the region’s essence and a principal element of our history. Capture part of the spirit while fishing in this exceptional body of water. We invite all levels of angler to partake in the excitement. Leave our private dock to catch “the big one”, trade stories with our guides, or simply meditate on that rippling point where line hits water.
Angling is only one aspect of life at Painter’s Lodge. Sea lions, eagles, and bears can be spied on a Wildlife Adventure Tour – we’ll get you closer. Watch them roam, swim, and soar in their natural habitats, completely unrestricted. Isn’t that how it’s supposed to be? And then there are the whales. Up close. Larger than life. A sight unimaginable until they’re right in front of you. A sight that will take your breath away – lost in the orca’s majestic glide. Like the wild, adventure is not searched for, it is all around.
