Summer is coming to a close, but that doesn’t mean camping season has to end. Our neighbour province, British Columbia, boasts beautiful weather in the fall and is home to hundreds of incredible and free campsites. Thinking of making a trip out to BC? Here are 4 free camping spots you may want to check out.
Jones Lake (Chilliwack)
Jones Lake is a clean, well-maintained campsite with stunning mountain views. This site has fire rings, pit toilets, and picnic tables. It also has options for swimming, boating, picnicking, hiking, fishing, mountain biking, and other big adventures. Jones Lake has over 50 camping spots, making the first-come first-served aspect that much less stressful.
Seton Lake is widely known for its beauty, and the free campsite is just a perk! Pack your fishing gear, hit the trails for a hike, or visit the 18-metre-high concrete dam. Whether you’re just stopping in for the day or spending the weekend, this site has everything you need to enjoy a relaxing or adventure-filled getaway.
Begbie Falls is nothing short of a picturesque adventure experience. This gorgeous set of falls is located in the mouth of Begbie Creek on the Upper Arrow Lake. In addition to gawking at the beautiful view, this site offers biking, fishing, horseback riding, boating and hiking.
Davis Lake Provincial Park
In addition to a small, warm-water lake and beach, Davis Lake Provincial Park also features a scenic waterfall. If visiting this site, however, you’ll want to be prepared. During certain times in the year, drive-in access to the campsites is closed, making for a 1km walk to your camping site.
