Port alice, bc
The west coast of Vancouver Island is marked by large inlets, remote villages and towns separated by wild coast and mountains. Only a few of these remote locations are accessible by paved road; Port Alice is one of them. Port Alice, a hidden gem of the north island, is a 2.5 to 3-hour drive from Campbell River.
Port Alice is located north, on the west side of Vancouver Island, on the banks of Neroutsos Inlet. Home of many cougars and bears. Port Alice is often referred to as 'The Gateway to the Wild West Coast". Fishermen looking to access the waters off Neroutsos and Qualsino Inlets, in addition to adventurers who want to hike kayak and explore some sacred spots are all drawn to this wonderful place.
The town has approximately 660 residents. The main industry was historically the local pulp mill and is shifting towards tourism. Now the Sea Otter Capital of Canada, the village has all the necessities, including a grocery store that has a great selection for reasonable prices, a well-stocked liquor store, plus a pizza restaurant that you must try! Most importantly, Port Alice has a marina with a lot of trailer parking, and of course, a fabulour RV Park.
