There is no better way to discover Canada than by visiting and staying in its magnificent national parks.
Canada’s national parks are very popular for hiking and camping. However, reservations are required for most of them. To hike or camp in a Canadian national park, you will need to make reservations or get a pass. Here are some national parks that you can make reservations and camp in.
Gros Morne National Park
This Park protects thousands of kilometres of unique landscape on Newfoundland’s west coast. The Park has more than 225 drive-in and 8 walk-in campsites in five campgrounds. You can choose to hike, camp by the sea or climb Gros Morne.
Wapizagonke Lake, La Mauricie National Park
This park showcases the rolling hills, lakes, and unique topography of the Canadian Shield and Great Lakes region. La Mauricie offers reservable canoe camping for 150 canoe campsites scattered among a dozen lakes in the park.
Thousand Islands National Park
Thousand Islands National Park has campsites only accessible by boat. These scenic islands are carved out of rugged granite and decorated with twisty pines. You can rent a kayak or canoe and paddle your way to the waterfront campsite or arrange for a boat shuttle/water taxi to get you there in no time.
Banff National Park
There are 13 campgrounds in this park that can get you up close to nature and wildlife. In Canada’s first national park, you can observe animals walk past your camping tent or cross your path as you hike.
Pacific Rim National Park
Perched on the edge of the Pacific in Tofino is the Pacific Rim National Park. This park will give you a new understanding of the wild west coast. The campground gives you access to the rainforest of British Columbia right on the edge of the Pacific and fronts onto the wide expanse of spectacular Long Beach.
