Books, Maps & Charts


The research you do before hand can sometimes mean the difference between a successful adventure and a disaster. We want to make sure you have the information you need to reach the goal of your trip, whether it's hiking up a mountain, floating down a river, casting the best fly or finding that perfect camping spot on a remote beach. With our extensive selection of marine charts and where-to books, plus our knowledgeable staff, River Sportsman is the place to come to plan your travels across and around Campbell River and North Vancouver Island in general.

We also carry a complete selection of street, highway and logging road maps to guide you to your destination.

Chances are, one of our helpful staff has been there, maybe even done that, and will be able to offer first-hand advice. With the greatest selection of charts on the Island we can give you an idea of the best places to go and show you how to get there. And of course we have the latest tidal and non-tidal fishing regulations as well as all the current hunting information you might need.
