If the dreary January weather has you dreaming of those warm summer days spent camping, you’ll want to start planning your vacation soon.

Parks Canada has officially opened summer camping spots at some national parks in BC.

As of January 3, 2019, reservations for the following parks will be open:

Fort Langley National Historic Site

Slots going fast

Dave Tovell, visitor experience manager with Parks Canada, said that today’s reservation numbers exceeded those from last year.

“A lot of long weekend slots in July and August have been booked,” he said.

Tovell anticipates that things will get busier on January 7, when reservations for Pacific Rim National Park Reserve open to the public.

“Slots will be going really quick,” said Tovell, adding that the park is one of the most popular places for camping in the country.

Tovell advises anyone looking to reserve their camping slot to act quickly and be online bright and early.
