Get ready for summer camping adventures now by booking your campsite at popular BC Parks.

Reservations open for two popular B.C. parks

Book now for some great outdoor adventures in 2019

Back country enthusiasts in Ashcroft, Cache Creek, Clinton, and other parts of the province can now make reservations for two popular adventures in British Columbia parks: the world-renowned Berg Lake Trail and Bowron Lake Canoe Circuit.

Hikers who want to explore the scenic trail in Mount Robson Provincial Park or paddle the canoe circuit in Bowron Lake Provincial Park can reserve a spot for the 2019 season through Discover Camping.

Gaining 800 metres of elevation in 23 kilometres, the Berg Lake Trail boasts some of the best scenery in the province, providing views of waterfalls, turquoise-coloured lakes, and massive glaciers.

The trail is open year-round, and can be reserved from June 12 to September 30, 2019.

The Bowron Lake Canoe Circuit involves 116 kilometres of paddling across 10 lakes, with several portages that are relatively flat. The entire trip takes six to 10 days to complete, depending on skill level. Those looking for a shorter trip can paddle the west side of the circuit, which takes two to four days to complete. The canoe circuit can be reserved from May 15 to September 23, 2019.

Reservations for long weekends fill up fast for both adventures. Visitors need to be well-prepared and self-sufficient due to the limited facilities in wilderness areas.

To book a trip along the Berg Lake Trail or the Bowron Lake Canoe Circuit, visit www.discovercamping.ca.
