ABOUT PORT ALICE
The west coast of Vancouver Island is made up of large inlets with remote villages separated by wild rugged coast and mountains. Only a precious few of these remote locations are accessible by paved road; Port Alice is one of them.
Port Alice is located North, on the West Side of Vancouver Island, on the banks of Neroutsos Inlet. Home of cougar and bear, Port Alice is often referred to as "The Gateway to the Wild West Coast". Fishermen have access to the waters off Neroutsos and Quatsino Inlets, hikers and kayakers explore the secret and sacred spots, and geo cachers and rock hounders are all drawn to this wonderful place.
The town itself has approximately 660 residents, though it seems less. The main industry was the now-closed pulp mill, and has shifted towards tourism. Now the Sea Otter capital of Canada, the town has all the necessities, including a grocery store that has great selection for reasonable prices, a well stocked liquor store, a gas station and a pizza restaurant that you must try! Most importantly, Port Alice has a marina located a minute away from us, and we include free trailer parking with your overnight stay at our fabulous RV Park.
Port Alice is about a 3 hour drive from Campbell River, and worth every second of the drive.
