Learn more about Jeremy's Bay campground, Jake’s Landing, Jim Charles Point, group camping, and backcountry camping.

For a more private and cozy night, stay in one of four types of roofed accommodations: oTENTik, Ôasis (new for 2021), rustic cabin, or yurt.

The five new heated Ôasis units, and the heated and newly insulated oTENTik tents and rustic cabins at Jim Charles Point, now with mattresses, are ideal options for cozier shoulder season visits. Visitors are still encouraged to bring warm clothing and sleeping bags during the shoulder seasons.

Ten new modern and inclusive washroom and shower facilities feature an accessible, barrier-free design to meet the needs of diverse visitors. The new facilities are gender neutral, designed for improved privacy and personal security. The facilities are larger for improved comfort and are strategically placed, reducing travel distance to showers.
