B.C. Parks Adds 594 Campsites

B.C. Parks announced that they have added 594 campsites throughout the province. The new BC Parks campsites are located in regions with the highest demand – the Lower Mainland, Thompson-Okanagan, Kootenay Rockies and Mount Robson.

The sites are in addition to 431 new campsites created in 2018, bringing the total number of new campsites to 1,025 during the past two years. For the third year in a row, there will be no increase to c`amping fees in provincial parks.

People from all over the world come to our province to experience the spectacular natural beauty and enjoy a range of camping opportunities. Camping is more popular than ever, which is why our government continues to increase the number of campsites and enhance visitor experience.
— George Heyman, Minister of Environment and Climate Change Strategy

Along with the additional campsites, existing facilities and infrastructure have been upgraded or added in four BC Parks campgrounds this year – Fintry Park, Martha Creek Park, Robson River and Monck Park.

People in B.C. love getting out to the great outdoors. Growing the number of campsites means more people can access popular spots and discover new favourites in different areas of the province. We want to make sure people of all abilities are able to enjoy nature and all our beautiful province has to offer. That’s why it’s so important that BC Parks is now incorporating more accessible design in new campgrounds and recreation sites.
— Lisa Beare, Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture
