About the Book

The bestselling guide to campgrounds across BC, Yukon, and the Canadian Rockies, newly revised and updated.

Western Canada’s quintessential camping guide—now in its 9th edition—lays the groundwork for anyone planning to get out of the city and explore the best that nature has to offer. At a time when many people are bursting to travel but still concerned with safety, Camping British Columbia, the Rockies, and Yukon offers over 150 possibilities for campers of every age and experience level.

For those packing up the RV with all the comforts of home or pitching a tent next to a quiet spot by a picturesque lake, this practical guide tells would-be campers everything they need to know: which campgrounds have the best playgrounds, safe swimming beaches, and interpretive programs; which parks have hot showers and nearby restaurants; which grounds are RV accessible; and which are best for families, young adults, and retirees. Every provincial, territorial, or national park campground in the region is listed alphabetically, along with clear maps and directions, more than 100 photos, and the latest health and safety regulations.
