Campbell, a Victorian by birth, was brought up in Western Australia and debuted for Subiaco in 1908.
He started his VFL career at Carlton, appearing in the opening three rounds of the 1911 season. His first two league game ended in draws and the third was decided by a margin of just two points. They would be the only games he played for Carlton and he finished the season at Fitzroy.
Used as a forward, Campbell made an immediate impression at his new club and despite only playing the second half of the season was their leading goal-kicker with 25 goals. He would only make six appearances in 1912 and decided to return to Subiaco.
