Canadian RV+Camping Week, May 23-28, 2017

Go RVing Canada and Canadian Camping and RV Council (CCRVC) are partnering again for the second annual Canadian RVing and Camping Week from May 23rd – May 28th, 2017. With Canada’s 150th birthday underway, there’s no better way to experience the beauty of the nation by inviting Canadians to explore and enjoy the outdoors.

They will be partnering with Make-A-Wish® Canada again this year to help grant magical wishes for children with life-threatening medical conditions. In addition to raising funds through the well-known Make-A-Wish star program, this year they’re hoping to host the largest simultaneous marshmallow roast with campgrounds across the country – a fun initiative for campers and a great way to help raise funds for Make-A-Wish®.

Canadian RVing and Camping Week will be the unofficial kick off for the RVing and camping season in Canada. Participating campgrounds from coast to coast will offer discounted campsite rates on reservations made between May 23rd – 28th, 2017.

Changes for camping reservations to ensure fairness for users

Changes to the BC Parks Discover Camping Reservation Service for the 2017 season aim to improve fair access for everyone looking to book a campsite in B.C.’s world-class provincial parks. Beginning in 2017, the mid-March “opening day” for reservations will be eliminated and the three-month rolling reservation window will be extended. Reservations for the 2017 season can be made four months in advance of an individual campground’s first reservable date.

Other changes include new measures to prevent the reselling of reservations, restrictions around altering arrival dates to prevent the practice of ‘overbooking’ where coveted reservations, including long-weekends, are unfairly secured, and implementing a pilot project in select parks to reduce the maximum length of stay to seven days during the peak camping season in order to provide more camping opportunities in provincial parks.
