A reminder to all BC Parks visitors that frontcountry reservations open, for up to 3 months in advance of the arrival date, on March 15th annually.
To ensure that newly released campsite inventory is available at the same time online and through the call centre, it is always released when the call centre opens. In 2015, March 15th falls on a Sunday, which means that the new inventory will be available starting at 9:00 am PDT.

To ensure that your credit card information is kept secure, the Province of BC has recently upgraded security standards. While most users should experience a seamless transition, there may be some difficulty accessing the payment page if your computer's security is out of date.

Site Specific Reservations
More than 90 reservable parks will be offering site specific reservations. To help you plan your stay, we have added many photos and campsite specific information. Please note there may be minor differences in the campsite information and photos may not be available for every site; these differences are not grounds for refunds. These details are intended to assist visitors to select an appropriate campsite when the reservation is made, and to receive their specific site when they arrive. If you want to camp close to a friend, near a trail or by the beach, you can now select the site that meets your needs.
Group Site and Picnicking Reservations
Effective September 15th, 2011, the Discover Camping Reservation Service will be accepting reservations for group and day use facilities 12 months in advance of the arrival date.
Reservations can be made up to 12 months in advance provided the dates requested are within the operating season of that park. Reservations are taken on a “first come-first served” basis and may be made online at www.discovercamping.ca
or via our Call Centre (a $5 surcharge applies) at 1-800-689-9025, Monday to Friday from 7:00 am until 9:00 pm and Saturday, Sundays and holidays from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.
No Change in Reservation Charges
The cost to make, change and cancel a campsite reservation remains the same as previous years. The reservation service charge of $6.00 plus tax per night will apply, to a maximum of $18.00 plus tax for three or more nights per campsite. This charge covers operational costs and ensures the reservation service pays for itself and is not subsidized by taxpayers.
In addition to the reservation charge, a service fee of $5.00 plus tax will be applied to transactions completed by the call centre. You can avoid this charge by reserving online.
- Transaction (Reservations, cancellation, change) fees are non-refundable.
