Quick Info

The Parks Canada campground reservation system launched in January. Visitors are encouraged to reserve early to ensure they have a space and find the perfect spot for their visit.

Parks Canada manages a network of 46 national parks, 171 national historic sites, four national marine conservation areas, one national urban park and eight historic canals that make up the rich tapestry of Canada’s cultural and natural heritage. Follow Parks Canada throughout #Canada150 on Facebook.

Free admission for youth only applies to places managed by Parks Canada. Guided tours and hikes and programs not usually included with admission will still have a fee. This does not apply to provincial parks, territorial parks, municipal and private parks, nor to the many historic sites not managed by Parks Canada.
