BC Camping: Best Places to Book in 2024.

7 February 2024

It may only be a few weeks into 2024, but that doesn’t mean you can’t start thinking about where you will set up camp this summer. BC Parks has released its reservations for the upcoming summer, and if you wait until then to pick a place to go, you’ll be out of luck.

Lucky for you, we’ve picked out a few great spots throughout the province for you to try out!

 

Lower Mainland

Among the top camping areas in the most populated area of the province is near the Squamish mountain range.

Alice Lake Provincial Park is an hour north of Vancouver and very popular come summer. With four freshwater lakes surrounded by mountains, forests and grassy areas, you can enjoy all the nature just steps from your campsite. Amenities include drinking water, a playground, flush toilets, showers, and electrical hookups for a cost.

Sasquatch Provincial Park has three vehicle-accessible campgrounds for you to choose from, surrounded by pocket lakes, scenic mountain ranges and a unique second-growth forest. Among the usual activities, like water skiing, hiking, and swimming, there’s a learn to fish program for youth.

 

Vancouver Island

Who doesn’t want sand and surf while they’re camping? The Island is a camper’s paradise once you get your rig off the ferry.

Goldstream Provincial Park is only 16 kilometres from downtown Victoria and feels like a completely different world. It has waterfalls, a river that leads into the sea, and plenty of flora and fauna to investigate. There are campsites for your RV and group sites with picnic shelters, wood stoves, electricity, and water.

Strathcona Provincial Park is one of the oldest in BC. There’s plenty of rugged wilderness to take in, whether you’re staying at one of the campgrounds or want to hike into the backcountry for a few days.

Kootenays

This region is an absolute jewel, and those who camp here know it. You won’t be disappointed if it’s the East Kootenays or the West Kootenays.

Kootenay Lake Provincial Park is ideal for fishing or taking out your canoe or kayak. Two campgrounds and a group campsite give you a choice for your RV. Amenities include drinking water, fire pits, picnic areas, and pit toilets.

Kokanee Creek Provincial Park has a kilometre of sandy beach and four campgrounds. They’ve got all the amenities you’ll want and plenty of places to explore, like Nelson, Kaslo, and Ainsworth Hot Springs communities.

 

Okanagan

One of (if not the best, vacation locations in BC) is anywhere within the Okanagan. Beaches, lakes, forests, mountains, and plenty of sunshine make Okanagan campsites a hot commodity.

Bromley Rock Provincial Park is tiny but mighty in a unique landscape. Located along the Similkameen River, the rock formations in the area are to be noticed. The surrounding hiking trails offer a great view of the Similkameen Valley.

Fintry Provincial Park has over two kilometres of waterfront, which means plenty of swimming, boating, kayaking, and fishing. It’s also a park with a rich history, which you can learn about by taking a tour of the Manor House and other buildings on the site.
