Coronavirus (COVID-19) impacts
  • Starting on June 22, we will gradually reopen camping facilities starting with select self-registration camping areas with limited capacity.
  • Additional camping will reopen in phases, at reduced occupancy, throughout June and July.
  • Plan ahead and be prepared for a different experience than you experienced when visiting Parks Canada places in the past.
  • At this time, Parks Canada will not be taking any walk-in reservations for the 2020 season.
  • There will also be no roofed accommodations for the 2020 season. This includes both oTENTik and equipped camping.
  • New reservations will open at Cape Breton Highlands National Park starting at 8:00 a.m. ADT on July 13, 2020. Same day reservations are being accepted until 2:00 p.m. ADT on day of arrival. Not all services or facilities are open, so please see details below before you reserve.
