Parks Canada camping reservations

You can now make camping reservations at national parks across Canada

Camping reservations for national parks in Canada let you get outdoors and soak in Canada's extraordinary landscape. Bug bites and all, Canada is the perfect place for a little rustic adventure. 

Park Canada’s online reservation service makes it easier than ever to plan your next outdoor experience. The tool gives you peace of mind with a guaranteed spot at one of Canada's favourite locations from national parks and conservation areas to historic sites. 

Reservations for 2020 started in January, with bookings available at most locations until the end of March. Looks like spots are already filling up fast, so those looking to secure a spot should do it soon. 

You can book at over 36 national parks and conservation sites including, Banff, Gros Morne, Yoho, Cape Breton Highlands, Jasper, and Bruce Peninsula, as well as lots of others. 

You can also reserve to stay at or visit one of Canada's historic sites like the beautiful Saint-Ours Canal National Historic Site along the Richelieu River in Quebec or Rideau Canal National Historic Site in Ottawa. 

You'll be able to choose upon the time of booking whether you’re looking for a fully-serviced campsite, roofed accommodation, an interpretive guided hike or a remote backcountry experience, so don't worry about not being able to tailor your perfect wilderness vacation. 

Equipment such as, small to large sized tents, motor homes, vans, and tent trailers are all available for rental if needed. 

The map view also makes it incredibly easy to search what different camping options each site offer. Just put in whichever type of camping you're interested in – whether backcountry or frontcountry – and you'll be able to see which parks offer that experience. 

Happy camping!
