Parks Canada recognizes that being in nature provides important physical and mental health benefits. Going outdoors, including camping overnight, is a great way to maintain health and wellness, so long as everyone follows physical distancing practices. Please refer to our Covid-19 Camping Tips prior to booking your campsite. Reservations for trips between May 2021 and March 2022 will open April 26th. This will give you more time to consider the latest COVID-19 measures. It may also help reduce the need for cancellations.
