Camping the way you like it

Stay close to nature at one of our wonderful campsites – at your preferred comfort level.

What's included?

We offer campgrounds for all tastes: from all-services to ones offering "back-to-basics" experiences.

Frontcountry campgrounds all offer washrooms and may include showers, kitchen shelters, electrical, sewer and water hookups and Wi-Fi access zones. Campgrounds may also be in close proximity to other facilities like an outdoor theatre, grocery stores, playgrounds and picnic shelters. Sites may have a fire pit or access to a shared fire pit.

A detailed list of amenities is available when you make a reservation or on the website of your destination.

How much does it cost?

Starting at $15.70 per night. Prices may vary depending on the time of year, level of service and location. Reserve online or go to the fees page of your destination to find pricing information.

Things to keep in mind

Food

  • Please store all food, food-related items and toiletries in a hard-sided vehicle / trailer / motor home or in wildlife-proof lockers.

Fire

  • Be aware of any restrictions your location may have.
  • Buy and burn local firewood, not deadfall or surrounding trees.
Don't move firewood

Moving firewood, even just a few kilometers to or from a campground, is a common way for invasive insects and diseases to spread. Purchase local firewood and burn it in provided fire pits or leave it on-site to avoid transporting pests that may destroy our forests. Help us save forests.

Respect

  • Many campgrounds have quiet hours where reduced noise levels are required (this applies to generator use).
  • Respect nature: leave nothing but footprints and take nothing but pictures.
  • Please leave your site as tidy as, or tidier than, you found it.
