With the start of camping season just a few weeks away, the Province of British Columbia  is offering a chance for camping enthusiasts to take a sneak peek at the new online reservation system, part of a wider redesign of the BC parks Digital footprint.

The improvements hailed bh Minister George Heyman as a more reliable and responsive program to the needs of campers.

“As more people explore British Columbia’s spectacular outdoors, we are improving the online services they rely on to plan their visits to BC Parks. Providing a more reliable, responsive and easy-to-use reservation service will better meet the needs of people wanting to access and connect with nature by easily identifying available camping opportunities in provincial parks.”

The improved system was designed with input from campers, park operators and other service organizations, the new reservation service includes: 

More flexible search options such as a map to search campgrounds by region, park listing or site availability 

Information on nearby facilities and large photos of campsites so people know what to expect when they arrive 

An interactive calendar that shows when booked sites will become available 

Saved booking preferences within customer accounts

The new reservation program opens up for use on March 21st at 7AM, the full list of campgrounds and their dates of operation can be accessed here.

To explore the new site prior to its launch you can test it out here.
