1. Check for campground closures and fire bans ahead of time

Excited about that summer campfire? Not so fast. Wildfires have been a major issue on the West Coast in the past decade, so be sure to check for fire bans and potential highway closures due to wildfires before setting out for your next trip.

2. Book your campground in advance

BC camping season can be busy. Don’t pull up to a campground only to be turned away - book your site in advance! BC Parks offers helpful resources for finding and booking campsites that suit a variety of needs, and companies like Overnight RV Parking can help you find places to park your recreational vehicle on the fly.

Hot Tip: you can book your campground up to 2 months in advance through BC Parks.
