© Parks Canada

Welcome to Parks Canada's new and improved online Reservation Service! Reservation Launch dates for the 2014 season are listed below. Over the winter, we are working hard to improve our reservation service with ongoing enhancements and exciting new offers.

Thanks for visiting us today and we look forward to welcoming you to soon in 2014!

RESERVE - RELAX - EXPERIENCE!

Parks Canada is proud to offer our reservation service, now at 25 national parks and historic sites across Canada. With this service, guests are provided with peace of mind by being able to reserve a frontcountry campsite/accommodation/backcountry experience/guided hike in advance of their arrival at the national park of their choice. Visitors can plan their experience with confidence and can look forward to breathtaking scenery, outstanding recreational opportunities and exciting learning experiences.

The reservation service is available:

  • Online 24/7 at: www.reservation.parkscanada.gc.ca
  • By calling: 1-877-RESERVE (1-877-737-3783). The telephone service is available from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. local park time (except from 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. in Newfoundland).

As of 2013, all reservations are now on a site specific basis. This means that guests are able to select and reserve their exact campsite/accommodation/hike. To continue meeting the needs of campers who prefer not to reserve in advance, campsites will still be available in several national park campgrounds on a first-come, first-served basis.

If you would like more general information, please call the Parks Canada national information line at 1-888-773-8888.

Here are the operating dates for the reservation service for the 2014 season:


Thank you for visiting Parks Canada's Reservation Service. Please take note of the following important dates.

Starting normally at 8:00 a.m. local park time (check exact times below) on the reservation launch date, you can reserve for any available dates during a campground/hike's reservable period. After a park or site launches for the season, the reservation service is available 7 days a week during their reservable period.
