Welcome to Parks Canada's online Reservation Service! Reservation Launch dates for the 2015 season are listed below.

RESERVE.
RELAX.
EXPERIENCE.

Parks Canada is proud to offer our reservation service, now at 27 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. With this service, our visitors can travel at ease, with the peace of mind of a guaranteed place at their favourite location.

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).

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 2015 season:
