Plenty of camping opportunities in British Columbia
BC boasts a huge variety of camping facilities: seven national parks, approximately 900 provincial parks and protected areas, more than 1,200 recreation sites, and hundreds of private campgrounds and RV parks. Many campsites are accessible by car or RV (recreational vehicle); others provide a rustic wilderness experience.
Relax around a crackling campfire, surrounded by stars and the Canadian Rockies. Embark on an RV adventure along the famous Alaska Highway. Or, climb into your tent and fall asleep to the sounds of the Pacific Ocean.
Combine camping with activities such as hiking, fishing, biking, hot springs or historic sites. Head out with a single location in mind or sample multiple campsites on a driving tour.
And RVers, take note: members of the world’s largest RV owner’s association, the Good Sam Club, declared BC the “Province to Visit” for eight years running in their annual Welcome Mat Awards (2002 – 2008).
