We put together a list of what we think may be useful for your travel planning. We hope it will help you to find the information you need as well as some interesting places, hikes and camping spots.

Let's get into it!


If you are planning to visit the Vancouver Island you'll need a ferry reservation. That can be done through the BC Ferries website. Reserve your ferry ride as soon as you have your dates, spots fill up quickly in summer. Sprinter Vans have dimessions 9ft×19ft. Camper Pilot and Daniel have dimensions 8ftx17ft.

Book your trip over to the Island here : BC Ferries website


It is also important to book your campground spots in advance. The availability for the most popular campgrounds in National Parks eg. Jasper, Banff or Pacific Rim openes at the end of January. You do not need a spot with a hook up. Dry camping spot is enough, our camper vans have the solar panels installed on the roof. Also, there is NO need to buy a Discovery Pass in advance. The price is not higher if you buy it at the entrance to the National Park. And most of the time no line ups to buy it.

Secure a campground spot asap here : Parks Canada website


If you'll be heading to Sea to Sky highway direction to Whistler you need to book your campground spots in the Provincial Parks. You can make a reservation for your entire stay in Provincial Parks up to four months before your desired arrival date. New frontcountry camping reservations become available at 7 am Pacific Time daily.

The closest campground to Vancouver is called Porteau Cove and it is located on Sea to Sky Highway aprox 35mins drive from Vancouver. Spots in that campground fill up fast so if you are planing to stay close to Vancouver on your first night, you may want to look it up.
