BC Parks, Campgrounds make plans for launch of camping season

Plans to reopen British Columbia's provincial campgrounds made for part of Premier John Horgan's review of the BC Restart plan delivered to the public on Wednesday, with a bit of a two stage launch to the camping season rolled out.

May 14th will make for the re-opening of Day use facilities across BC, with parks, recreation sites and trails open for the daylight hours, though in some instance facilities such as playgrounds, halls and picnic shelters will remain closed.

The larger launch comes on June first when the list of day-use facilities is expanded as well as the opening of campgrounds and recreation sites province wide.

As of May 25th the Discover Camping reservation system will be back in service as well.

However some campsite availability may be reduced in parts of the province, which will affect existing reservations, though the province notes that majority of the existing reservations will be honoured.

Details on the gradual return to the BC Parks and Recreation sites can be reviewed here:

The Page for Lakelse Lake indicates the return for Day use on May 14th

Closer to Prince Rupert, both Prudhomme Lake and Diana Lake sites so far have no re-opening dates listed on the provincial site.

To find out which parks and campgrounds will be reopening, as well as the services available  check the BCParks website for the latest updates.

When it goes back online, the Discover Camping Reservations portal can be found here.
