If you’re into roughing it, backcountry sites can actually be reserved now, while you’ll have to wait until March 4 to make camping reservations for individual front-country spots.
Comfort camping sites will begin to take bookings on March 5.
Group camping remains closed at this time due to COVID-19 gathering restrictions.
Alberta Parks suggests making an account before reservations launch, so that you can sign in right away on the day of, and pre-planning where you want to go but staying flexible on dates. It’s also a good idea to have alternative trips in mind, just in case your dream location is full.
Make your summer camping reservations as soon as possible (after March 4), and get ready to sleep under the stars.
