This Sunday, March 15th, BC’s camping reservation system will open for the season. From Cultus Lake and Sasquatch Park to Liard River Hot Springs, Wells Gray, and Mount Fernie, you can start planning your summer of camper, trailer, and tent camping around our beautiful province.
BC Camping Reservations
The BC camping reservation system connects you with 115 front country campgrounds in 99 provincial parks.
New for the 2015 camping season, families can now reserve campsites in Summit Lake, Juniper Lake, Whiskers Point and Kootenay Lake provincial parks. More campsites are also available in Mount Robson and Kentucky Alleyne provincial parks.
This year, Haynes Point and Okanagan Falls provincial parks are being managed by the Osoyoos Indian Band (OIB). Campers to these Interior parks can expect the same recreational opportunities enjoyed previously. The Province and OIB are working to have both parks open April 1, 2015, for the camping season, and for Haynes Point to be on the Discover Camping system. The campground at Okanagan Falls remains first-come, first-serve.
Starting at 9:00am on March 15th, you can call 1-800-689-9025 or visit the Discover Camping website to book your exact campsite. You can make your reservations up to 3 months in advance of your arrival date. Up to three reservations can be made in one transaction for those looking to book more than one camping excursion.
