TORONTO, Ontario — Reservations for B.C.’s campsites are now open for 2017.
The earlier Jan. 2 opening day is one of several changes to the province’s reservation system this year.
The guidelines, announced last November, are intended to prevent campers from cheating the system by booking early and then cancelling extra days. Some of the changes are as follows:
- The mid-March “opening day” for reservations has been replaced with a four-month “rolling” window. (ie: On Jan. 2, campers can only book with arrival dates on or before May 2).
- To prevent reselling of sites, reservations must be made under one or two names that can’t be changed.
- Reservations will be invalid unless one of the those names stays for the duration of the booking.
- Discover Camping call centre hours extended to 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., seven days a week.
