We are so looking forward to the 2022 camping season, but we have definitely been dreading the reservation process through BC Parks.
But for 2022, BC Parks is responding to visitor feedback with a new camping reservation service.
The new site includes more flexible search options to find and book a campsite, handy maps, calendars and lists of available sites for quicker navigation. They have also scaled up web servers to manage the high traffic volumes.
The new reservation service will be available for bookings starting March 21, 2022. Visit bcparks.ca starting March 14, 2022, to preview the reservation service, create your new account, and explore.
Last day for reservations on discovercamping.ca (including web reservations and call centre support) for arrival dates up to March 31, 2022 (Porteau Cove and Garibaldi Backcountry reservations, and Backcountry permits only).
Blackout period to transition between systems – no web booking or call centre support available.
VIEW ONLY MODE launch of new reservation service via bcparks.ca. Users can create an account, save booking details and preferences, and explore the site. Accounts from Discover Camping will not transfer to the new system, you will need a new account.
7:00 AM PT – Frontcountry and backcountry reservations available via bcparks.ca, 2-month rolling window. Backcountry day permits available. Frontcountry and backcountry reservations will only be available for bookings with an arrival date up to May 21 – this includes bookings for the May long weekend.
