General Terms and Conditions
Due to the nature of seasonal camping and the pressure that continual use places on our natural features and park infrastructure, conditions for seasonal campers are more stringent than conditions that apply to short-term campers within provincial parks. The following conditions have been separated into two categories: those that apply to ALL campers (including seasonal) and those that apply to SEASONAL campers only.

• A limit of six (6) people per campsite is allowed for non-immediate family groups. “Immediate” is defined as a family consisting of a parent(s) and children 18 years of age and under or another adult acting in a guardianship role of said children in the absence of parent(s).
• Only one camping unit (tent, tent-trailer, camper, camper-truck/van, camping trailer or motorhome) permitted in each campsite. Mobile homes and bunkhouse type trailers are not permitted.
• All camping units and campsites must be maintained so as not to detract from the park setting. Due to campsite size, length restrictions may apply. All camping units and equipment must be contained within the campsite.
• One small tent for accommodating dependent children and one screened tent for meal purposes is permitted depending on the size of the campsite. Additional small tents for dependent children may be allowed at the discretion of the Park Supervisor.
• Major appliances must be contained within the camping unit’s original construction.

Rowdy behaviour or excessive noise is not permitted at any time.
• Failure to comply with the above conditions and Parks Act and Regulations may result in eviction.
Seasonal Campers Only
• Upon arrival at the park, applicants will be asked to produce a valid driver’s licence which will be used during the permitting process to cross reference information provided on the application. This will ensure the correct person is checking into the seasonal campsite. Also, during this process, seasonal campers will receive their annual transferable entry permit.
• The seasonal camping program is available from the May long weekend until September 30th at most locations. All services and amenities will be available from the May long weekend to the September long weekend.

In some cases, you may be required to vacate the park due to a shortened operating season or capital project commencement. No refunds are available.
