Situated on BC's west coast right on the ocean, Willingdon Beach Campsite in Powell River offers an abundance of outdoor activities for RVers and tenters. Set amid tall trees in a natural park setting, the 80-site campground provides a sandy beach and swimming area with a nearby waterpark and playground. Fishing, trails, spectacular sunsets, mini-golf, shops, cafes, restaurants, and artists are just steps away.
Located on the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia, where stunning mountains meet the sheltered waters of the Pacific Ocean, lies the community of Powell River. Once known as a resource extraction centre, Powell River now offers visitors countless opportunities for outdoor adventure such as kayaking, canoeing, rock climbing, golfing, boating, hiking, biking, fishing, and scuba diving. In the winter it's popular for snowshoeing.
Powell River is home to world-class art galleries, tremendous dining opportunities, and memorable events and festivals. Some of these include the Blackberry Festival, SeaFair, the Powell River Film Festival, Texada Island's Sandcastle Weekend, Kathaumixw, Symphony Orchestra Academy of the Pacific, and the Sunshine Music Festival.
Powell River is located 31 km (19 mi) north of the Saltery Bay ferry terminal on the upper Sunshine Coast. Visitors will take the Horseshoe Bay Ferry in West Vancouver to Langdale, drive to Earls Cove (80 km/50 mi) and board a second ferry to Saltery Bay.
On the doorstep of both Vancouver and Vancouver Island, the Powell River region offers an array of experiences for travelers of all kinds, no matter the season.
