B.C. residents to get preferential access to camping in province’s parks

B.C. residents might have a better chance of getting a coveted camping spot this season.

When reservations open on May 25, B.C. residents will have preferential access to camping spots.

BC Parks says non-B.C. residents with existing reservations are asked to contact the call centre before June 15 to cancel and receive a full refund.

New reservations made after May 25 found to be made by non-B.C. residents will be subject to immediate cancellation without refund.

The Discover Camping website and call centre will open to new reservations on May 25 at 7 a.m.

Campgrounds, camping opportunities and accommodations will begin to open June 1.

Frontcountry and backcountry reservations will be available on a two-month rolling window starting May 25 at 7 a.m.

The province is asking visitors to use parks close to home, continue to physically distance and bring their own hand sanitizer amid the coronavirus pandemic. Sanitization of high-touch areas and bathrooms will be stepped up.

A full list of open parks can be found on the BC Parks website.
