The Camping Fee Exemption applies only to the base camping fee that pays for your campsite. It does not apply to the transaction fees you pay when making a reservation. For more information on the difference between camping fees and transaction fees, see the camping fees page.
People with disabilities receiving income assistance can claim the Social Services Camping Fee Exemption.
You may qualify if you or a member of your party receives assistance through one of these programs:
- Indigenous Services Canada Disability Income Assistance
- B.C. Ministry of Children and Family Development At Home Program
- B.C. Ministry of Social Development disability benefits
If you qualify, your party does not have to pay the base camping fee for frontcountry camping. You also get free parking for two vehicles.
You must still pay a $6 per night transaction fee if you make a reservation. For more information on transaction fees, see the camping fees page.
You may also have to pay camping fees for additional goods and services like firewood or electrical hook-up.
When you make a reservation, choose the exemption at checkout. You cannot claim it later. For more information, see when you make a reservation, below.
When you arrive at the park, you must show proof that you qualify. If you do not bring the correct documents, you will have to pay camping fees in full.
