Provincial government makes changes to camping reservations ahead of 2017 camping season

The BC government is hoping to build on the positive momentum during the 2016 camping season.

Minister of Environment Mary Polak says in order to make things better for everyone, the system will see a minor overhaul.

“For the 2017 season we have made some important changes to ensure that getting a reservation for your family is convenient and is fair for everyone in trying to find that holiday spot.”

Changes taking effect on January 2 and include eliminating the mid-March “opening day” for reservations and extending the three month rolling window to four months.
