Some Parks Canada places have begun a safe, gradual reopening of some outdoor areas and services, including camping. Visitors are encouraged to plan ahead and be well-prepared for their visit. Details here.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) impacts

Starting June 22, Kootenay National Park will be opening backcountry camping and select front country sites, with some restrictions.

For capacity and safety reasons, all Equipped Campsite and oTENTik bookings for the season are cancelled.

  • Showers and kitchen shelters are closed
  • Campground capacity may be restricted to assist with physical distancing

Visit the Kootenay National Park COVID-19 page for updates on park services and sites.

Sleep under the stars in Kootenay National Park. Stay in one of three scenic frontcountry campgrounds or save the set up and enjoy a night in an oTENTik. Want to go farther? Strap on a backpack and head into the backcountry for an unparalleled wilderness camping experience. Whatever your preference Kootenay has it all!

Camping is only permitted in designated areas with a valid park pass and camping permit.
