Recreation Sites and Trails

On January 1, 2006 the Ministry of Tourism, Sport and the Arts took over responsibility for forest recreation sites and trails from the Ministry of Forests.

More than 1,200 recreation sites are located around British Columbia for the camping enjoyment of residents and visitors to the province. There are three types of recreation sites: managed with fees, managed without fees, and user maintained.

There is also an extensive network of trails for those wishing to experience British Columbia’s natural beauty.  

Recreation Sites by Location

The interactive map is a good place to start if you are a visitor to our province, new to camping or just looking for somewhere other than your "favourite" spot.  A new and more detailed version will be posted soon.

Map users are encouraged to become familiar with this tool by taking some time to run through a short online tutorial. Look through the list of recreation sites Listing of Recreation Sites  [560 kb] and once you have decided where you would like to camp, go to the interactive map and click on the appropriate district.

Please be patient when the maps are loading. It can be a slow process due to the amount of detail involved.

Information on whether a site is managed with or without fees, or is user maintained, is available through the listing of recreation sites found below.
