There’s a reason why it says ‘Beautiful British Columbia’ on the provincial license plate – it really is one of the most beautiful places on Earth.
And we’re extremely lucky to have all this super, natural, wonder right in our own backyards. BC is home to some incredible national parks and they’re full of amazing campsites. We picked some of our favourite sites for you to consider visiting this summer.

Liard River Hot Springs Provincial Park
