Those looking for a provincial campsite next year should mark an upcoming date on their calendar.
BC Parks will open up campsite reservations earlier this year. Reservations will be available online as of 7 a.m. on Jan. 3, 2023. BC Parks operates myriad popular campsites in the Kamloops area, including Lac le Jeune, Paul Lake and Scotch Creek.
In addition to the earlier booking date, campers will be able to book four months in advance beginning this year, instead of two.
“Through our ongoing visitor engagement, we've heard the majority of campers prefer a four-month rolling window, allowing people to book a site well in advance of their visit," B.C.’s minister of environment, George Heyman, said in a press release. “We will continue to listen to public feedback so we can improve people's park experiences, and everyone can easily access the many beautiful parks and backcountry areas our province has to offer."
