Knight Inlet Lodge, Grizzly Bear and Wildlife Watchin

Campbell River, BC

Knight Inlet Lodge. Located 80 kilometres, or 50 air miles, north of Campbell River, British Columbia, is a wild and remote area of the Pacific Northwest known as Knight Inlet. Tucked into Glendale Cove 60 kilometres from the mouth of the inlet is our floating wilderness resort called Knight Inlet Lodge.

Glendale Cove is home to one of the largest concentrations of grizzly (brown) bears in British Columbia. It is not uncommon for there to be up to 40 bears within 10 kilometres of the lodge in the peak fall season, when the salmon are returning to the river.

Knight Inlet Lodge is the place to visit for a grizzly bear viewing holiday.
