BC Camping Season Kicks off Today

Comments 6 by Rebecca Bollwitt

A spring and summer highlight for many, great getaways at 78 BC Provincial Park campsites are now available to book.

The Vancouver Bollwitt's First Tent

Today the reservation system begins taking your requests for the upcoming season which will open up for the May long weekend.

How to reserve your campsite

  • Book your site through the reservation system at DiscoverCamping.com
  • Call 1-800-689-9025 or (604) 689-9025
  • Visit the GoCampingBC website for information
  • The reservation system is open April 1, 2010 until September 15, 2010.

    If tent camping isn’t your thing, some BC Provincial Parks also offer yurts. You can book a yurt (see a photo of some in my Sunshine Coast post) at any of the following campgrounds: Allison Lake, Ellison, Fintry, Kekuli Bay, Kikomun Park, North Okanagan Lake, South Okanagan Lake, and Wasa Lake.

    I personally love camping although I (haven’t been in about two years) and I’ve slept in tents from Norbury Lake to Wells Grey. I have heard that the reservation systems are pretty busy today but I encourage you to try again tomorrow if you can’t get through. Camping in BC is just absolutely the best experience.

      The system only allows you to book 2 or 3 months in advance I believe. So right now you can only book up until the end of June.

      Thanks Duane. So when we going?

      Yes, you can only book 3 months in advance. The online system charges $6 to book, change, or cancel a reservation.

      Can’t wait to get back out there again – Bear Creek is still my favourite by far!
