WINTER: Snowbird locations and overnight RVing. TRAVEL ALERTS: Know Before You Go


British Columbia’s independently owned and operated campgrounds provide services and facilities to suit every lifestyle and budget. Whether you prefer a full service site with electrical, water and sewer hook-up, a limited service site with just electrical and/or water, or perhaps a basic site for your tent or tent-trailer, you will find lots to choose from throughout all regions of BC and within all the terrains that this stunning province has to offer. Camp by a lake, on a river, at the foot of a mountain, or under a canopy of tall trees in the forest, it’s all here in BC.

British Columbia campgrounds provide campers with the amenities for a comfortable camping vacation including flush toilets and showers. Many offer a laundromat and small convenience store as well as other amenities.

A firepit is provided at most campsites and some campgrounds have group fire pits where you can bring your lawn chair and meet fellow campers. Activities for the young and young-at-heart are often located within the campground or immediately adjacent to it. Children’s playground, horseshoes, volleyball and walking trails are just a few of the activities you will find at many sites. And many have planned events.

Often located on one of BC’s beautiful lakes, by a river or even on the ocean, campers have access to an abundance of water sports ranging from canoeing to water-skiing and swimming.

And when you are done with all the activities, you can put your feet up and relax at the campsite or by the water and watch the world go by!
