It is accessible via an inland highway and the lower island highway (scenic route), connecting to other Vancouver Island communities. Campbellton has an oceanic climate with mild and warm summers and arctic bursts in the winter, bringing below-freezing temperatures and the occasional snowfall.
An up-and-coming community with lots of growth potential and charm, this neighbourhood has an interesting history. It used to be an industrial area that was run-down and bleak, filled with dilapidated buildings. In 2011, residents decided to take it back, working with Vancouver Island University and the newly founded Campbellton Neighbourhood Association (CNA) to create a modernized, safe, and beautiful community.
Campbellton has shifted its outlook toward growth, development, and charm, creating forest trails, community gardens, and beautifying the streets. Campbellton even created a new mascot, the Campbellton Bear.
The neighbourhood association is a group of business owners and residents who work on issues like graffiti removal, charity events, and safety improvements. Some ongoing projects include improving riverfront access, cleanliness, environmental stewardship, landscaping and greenspace developments, upgrades to lighting throughout the neighbourhood and encouraging art and vibrancy back into the community.

Campbell River Estuary
The Campbell River riverbed was once a log dump, sawmill, and cement plant poisoned by industry. In the mid-1990s, environmentalists created a plan to allow the Campbell River Estuary to thrive once more, and many groups, including the Nature Conservancy of Canada, the Tula Foundation and the City of Campbell River, contributed millions of dollars to transform this heavily contaminated land into a healthy, living landscape once more. Today it is populated by animals, including black bears, blue herons, beavers and eagles. Salmon come to lay their eggs each year, and people can now come to this area of the river to fish and swim safely. It has become a fun, popular destination where residents of Campbellton spend their time.
