Reservations can now be made for most campgrounds in British Columbia through the BC Parks reservations system, Discover Camping.

Discover Camping is an interactive reservation website that displays availability, layout and amenities at 122 campgrounds throughout the province. The website has been open to the public for reservations since March 15.

Folks are able to reserve individual camping sites, through the Discover Camping website or the call centre, in many provincial parks up to three months in advance.

Campsites in Dry Gulch, Inland Lake and Ruckle Provincial Park are now available for the 2016 camping season. In addition two brand-new group camping sites at Syringa and Kootenay Lake provincial parks are available.

Groups can now book picnic spots at Summit Lake, Ten Mile Lake, Lac La Hache and Green Lake provincial parks. Groupsites are reservable up to 12 months in advance of the arrival date.

“Our world-renowned parks are in increasing demand from not only British Columbians, but the global community as well. The camping reservation system is a convenient and efficient way to secure a fun, outdoor adventure for the whole family, in some of the most spectacular settings anywhere,” Mary Polak, minister of environment said in a Ministry on Environment news release.

In 2015, Discover Camping saw more than 158,000 reservations through their website which was an almost 19 per cent increase from 2014. Seventy-three per cent of all the reservations made originated from B.C.

Reservations can be made at www.discovercamping.ca or through the call centre at 1 800 689-9052.
