Camping enthusiasts: get ready to book your  favourite spot.

Reservations for all front-country campgrounds and the Berg Lake trail are now being accepted. Reservations for all  group sites and the Bowron Lake canoe circuit have been available since  January and remain open.

Whether you like camping under the stars with the earth beneath you or camping on wheels, the reservation service offers information about sites, maps and amenities so you can customize your camping vacation.

Book through the interactive online reservation system at:

www.discovercamping.ca

For those who are more spontaneous campers, the system also offers mobile web services so smartphone users can easily make and change plans from the open road. Reservations can also be made through the call centre at 1 800 689-9025 or from overseas at +1 519 826-6850.

Camping in BC Parks is incredibly popular. Last year almost a quarter-million people reserved nights in provincial campgrounds.

2011 is the centennial year for British Columbia’s provincial parks system.
