About The Knutson Family

The Knutson family bought Cõsta Lotta Campground, located in Qualicum Beach – just north of Nanaimo, in 1980. After doing day charters and boat rentals in the 1980’s and early 90’s, we decided to combine Mom’s fabulous culinary skills and the hot Coho and Chinook fishing into a complete ‘full meal deal.’ 1994 saw the beginning of what is now Qualicum Rivers Resorts. The summer of 1999 was the first year that Qualicum Rivers Resort fished out of Winter Harbour and 2023 marks our 25th season on the wild West Coast. It has been a great 40 years, and we are definitely looking forward to the next 40 years.

Being family owned and operated we take pride in offering our guests one of the best fishing experiences they could ever have. We take care of all the little details and leave you to worry about reeling in the big ones!

This is our livelihood, and we want our guests to have the most stress-free and exciting fishing adventure that we can provide. Our goal is to build a relationship with our guests that will endure…
