Provincial Campground Reservation Procedures

The Provincial Government handed campground operations over to private operators a few years ago so there is no central reservation service. Campsite reservations can typically be made between the first business day in May and the Labour Day weekend.

Don’t be disappointed – reserve well in advance of your intended stay.

Reservations may be made starting no later than the first business day in May of each year (May 3, 1999) by calling the appropriate reservation office from 8:15 AM to 4:30 PM, Monday through Friday.

Here is the information you will be required to give when making your reservation.

  • arrival and departure dates
  • your name and address
  • your telephone number (home and business)
  • type of equipment (e.g., tent, tent trailer, travel trailer, motorhome)
  • credit card number and expiry date.

You may typically hold only one reservation at a time at a campground. A new reservation may not be accepted until the day following the expiry of the first reservation. Reservations cannot exceed 16 consecutive nights.

Reservation Fee

A reservation fee and a deposit for the cost of the first night’s camping fee must be paid at the time of the booking to confirm your reservation. MasterCard™ or VISA™ are the preferred means of payment.

The reservation fee is non-refundable.

Camping Fees

Camping fees vary depending on the facilities and services provided in the campground. Showers, campsites with power hook-ups and campsites with power and water hook-ups are available in some campgrounds.
