BC Parks Camping

On June 1st, many Provincial Parks campgrounds and back-country camping in BC will re-open. The reservation system has opened as of Monday, May 25th at 7:00am via https://www.discovercamping.ca/bccweb/

Preferential access to camping will be given to BC residents for the 2020 season. Non-BC residents with existing reservations can receive a full refund of their existing reservations before June 15th.

Campsites will have made adjustments to ensure physical distancing such as additional spacing between campsites and will limit the number of guests.

Parks that attract large crowds will remain closed and might open at a later date when it’s deemed to be safe. Backcountry campgrounds in some parks with a high day use will also remain closed.
