Residents should have first crack at camp sites
This summer British Columbians have been reserving provincial campgrounds in record numbers and most prime campgrounds are now full throughout July and August.
Considering BC Parks is supported with our provincial tax dollars, it makes sense to give B.C. residents the first opportunity to book our campgrounds. When the reservation system opens, this could mean a dedicated seven-day window of time, when only B.C. residents can reserve sites. Afterward, the reservation site can be opened up to the rest of Canada and the world.
Likewise we could do the same with our national parks, allowing a similar window of time when Canadians have the opportunity to reserve first. If you enjoy camping, email your government officials and let them know!
