Discover Camping taking reservations for provincial campgrounds starting March 15

Starting at 7 a.m. March 15, Discover Camping will begin accepting reservations for provincial campgrounds.

With a few clicks of the mouse, up to three reservations can be made online in one easy transaction through Discover Camping. Individual sites are available up to three months in advance, while group sites are available up to 12 months in advance.

“With camping being so popular, many British Columbian families are starting to plan for the upcoming camping season,” said Terry Lake, environment minister.

“Discover Camping makes planning and customizing camping vacations easy with its interactive features.”

The interactive system allows campers to view the availability, layouts and amenities at 113 reservable campgrounds that campers can generally drive into (front country campgrounds) including group sites, in 96 provincial parks throughout B.C. These campgrounds are equipped with picnic tables and fire rings.

Customer service has been enhanced this year through improvements to guidelines around refund requests. Group site campers now will receive reminder e-mails of their upcoming camping vacation.

Discover Camping also offers a mobile platform so smartphone users can easily make and change plans from the road.
