COVID 19 Updates on Campground Amenities and Activities

BC Travel Restrictions

With the recent BC Travel Restrictions (found here) we have decided to support the BC Tourism industry’s call to cancel all bookings until May 25th in an effort to ‘save the summer’. To that end, we will be closed until May 25th and we continue to take reservations for the remainder of the season.
