  • Site Description:One of the few sites on the east side of the lake and it has a long access road. It is easy to launch a small or boat or canoe, and explore the many bays and beaches. This site is not suitable for large trailers and motorhomes. Nearby Loveland Bay used to be a lake (before the dams were constructed), and the old logging camp site is now at the bottom of Campbell Lake.

  • Driving Directions:NOTICE: John Hart Dam access is open for the time being with intermittent closures mid June 2018. Alternate route via Gordon Rd off Highway 19 north of Campbell River. Highway signs are posted. From Campbell River, head west on Highway 28. Turn right onto Brewster Road at the top of General Hill and drive across the John Hart dam. Turn left on to the Loveland Bay road (gravel), and follow it for 7.5 km. Turn left and stay on this road for 2.3 km. Turn right and travel another 900 meters to the site. The site is roughly 30 minutes from the highway junction, depending on the condition of the gravel road.
