The past 15 months came with many changes that have impacted us significantly as a collective. While we seem to be edging closer to what we once knew to be normal, travel restrictions might still be a hindrance to that snow bird life you were counting on. Fortunately, Canada provides us with an endless supply of outdoor adventures and scenic RVing destinations! And British Columbia truly plays host to some of the most beautiful sights and campgrounds our great Nation has to offer. Now more than ever before, people are taking the time to invest in an RV and explore what's been hiding in our backyards all along! In this post, we'll explore some of the top RVing destinations of B.C. and beyond!
Garibaldi Provincial Park is known for its towering 2,678-metre peak called Mount Garibaldi, natural and scenic views, and endless hiking trails that span 90 km. Just off Highway 99, the park is located in the heart of the Coast Mountains, just 70 km north of Vancouver. Hike to Garibaldi Lake for stunning views of the park that are especially beautiful during the spring and fall months.
Wells Gray is one of B.C.’s larger parks, spanning 1,338,115 acres. There you’ll find natural wonders like volcanoes, waterfalls, mineral springs, and glaciers. With all that space, it's no wonder the park is divided into eight areas! Park your RV, and explore the following areas that the Wells Gray has to offer:
Witness the tallest peak of the Canadian Rockies from Mount Robson, towering at 3,954 metres. One of the finest views in B.C., this park is a great destination in both the summer and winter months, with all-season camping options available.
Just off the Trans Canada Highway, the Glacier National Park is home to ancient forests, alpine meadows, and, you guessed it – glaciers! Take a load off in front of a burning fire and discover Rogers Pass, the final link in Canada’s national railway.
Sitting on the western slopes of the Canadian Rockies, Yoho National Park offers vertical rock walls, waterfalls, and views of Canada's natural wonders from some of the highest peaks. Perfect for those into hiking and sightseeing.
Whiteswan Lake Park is best known for its two mountain lakes, Whiteswan and Alces, as well as the Lussier Hot Springs, a natural spring set in the forest beside the Lussier River. Visitors may also see a moose feeding in the fog-shrouded water of Alces Lake and experience stunning views of the Rocky Mountains.
You didn’t think we’d forget the Kootenay National Park, did you?! Home to the Radium Hot Springs, this 60-minute scenic drive offers magical views at every turn. Spend the day exploring deep canyons, wondrous waterfalls, and backcountry trails.
Take on the ultimate Canadian road trip! Experience the world’s highest tides and lush forests at Fundy National Park. Waters rise up to 12 metres and trails lead to waterfalls deep in Acadian forests. If you need a little break from your RV, you may even find accommodating yurts available to switch things up!
The scenic, desert-like Kiche Manitou Campground of Spruce Woods Provincial Park features 30-metre sand dunes as well as family-friendly activities such as campfires, hikes, and interpretive programs.
