Discover Camping reservations open March 15

Calling all wilderness explorers!

Get ready for another exciting season of camping, hiking and picnicking as BC Parks’ reservation system, Discover Camping, prepares to open.

If you’ve had your eye on that special camping spot starting at 9 a.m. (Pacific time) on Saturday, March 15, Discover Camping will begin accepting reservations at most campgrounds.

In total, there are more than 5,200 easily accessible (frontcountry) campsites.

Up to three reservations can be made in one easy transaction.

Individual frontcountry sites are available up to three months in advance, while group sites are available up to 12 months in advance of your arrival date.

This year,  even more reservable campsites have been added to Alice Lake,  Golden Ears, Rolley Lake and Herald Lake provincial parks, and campers now can make reservations at Meziadin Lake, Prudhomme Lake and Paul Lake provincial parks.

For more adventurous campers, new parks will be added before the May long weekend to the backcountry registration system: Desolation Sound and Joffre Lakes Provincial Park.

Backcountry permits for most parks can be purchased two weeks prior to your arrival date.

Discover Camping’s interactive system allows campers to view availability, layouts and amenities at 109 reservable campgrounds in 97 provincial parks throughout the province.

Most frontcountry campgrounds are equipped with picnic tables and fire rings.

Campers can also access Discover Camping reservation service from their smartphones.

This mobile platform is simpler and easier to access when the

Discover Camping website is in high demand or users need to make changes to their reservation on the go.
