With temperatures on the rise, we’re eager to pitch a tent, melt a mallow, and fall asleep under the stars, but not without planning ahead.

As any happy camper knows, before you pack a cooler, you’ll need to reserve a campsite and Parks Canada has just made it easier than ever before.

This summer, those who aren’t lucky enough to find an open site at their desired location will be able to request a notification when a site or PC accommodation becomes available.
