How to Use the Super Camping Guide
The Super Camping guide is designed to assist the RV traveller with their camping vacation in British Columbia. It features listings of private campgrounds and RV Parks that are members of the BC Lodging and Campgrounds Association and are Tourism British “Approved Accommodation” unless noted; National Parks campgrounds; RV dealers who offer services and supplies; and RV rental companies.

The guide is divided into the six tourism regions of British Columbia and includes road maps to help you with your travel plans. Select your camping destination from these maps or a BC road map and refer to the index, arranged alphabetically on page 49 of the guide, for the page number of the listings you require. • Summer Camping listings start on page 7 – 41 • Camping Cabins and On-site Rental Units listings are published on page 44.
• RV dealers and rental companies are listed on page 47. • Winter Camping see pages 42 - 43. These campgrounds, open year round, offer campsites for rent usually on a weekly and monthly basis for people looking to winter in the milder climate of British Columbia.
Symbols Handy symbols provide specifi c information on facilities found at, or immediately adjacent to, each campground or RV dealer/renter. A complete list of symbols is provided on page 3. Cabin listing symbols can be found on page 44.
RV Parks Info Super Camping features 2011 rates for private campgrounds. In rare cases where they were unavailable, 2010 rates have been substituted. Rates may or may not include the 12% HST and are subject to change. Generally, printed rates represent low season to high season. Rates printed are not necessarily available at all times. When making a reservation directly with a private campground or RV Park it is recommended that you ask for the facility’s cancellation and refund policy.

Big Rig Friendly Listings that include the wording “Big Rig Friendly” have fi ve or more sites that are a minimum 24 feet wide by 60 feet long, offer 14 feet overhead clearance and have 50-amp service.
A campground that is upgrading and has asked to be inspected or re-inspected or a campground that has failed to register for the current year is noted as “PROVISIONAL – APPROVED ACCOMMODATION PENDING” in the listing. If approved accommodation status is not attained or the campground again fails to register with Tourism British Columbia by the following year, the campground will no longer be eligible to be listed in Super Camping until the approved status has been attained.
Complaints about accommodation facilities should fi rst be discussed with the manager of the establishment and, if not resolved, be directed to the Tourism Product Manager, Tourism British Columbia, 3rd Floor, 1803 Douglas Street, Victoria, BC V8T 5C3 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Camping Select Recommended The Camping Select Five Star Campground Rating Program will help you select a property
that best suits your preference.
Introduced in British Columbia in 2002, the Camping Select program is based on a two-tier system, refl ecting separate Facility and Recreation scores. Rated campgrounds display a listing such as this example:
CAMPING SELECT Fac. Rec.
The Facility rating appears fi rst and then the Recreation rating.
In general, the more stars, the greater range of facilities, services, activities, amenities, and the higher the quality of facilities.
See ad page 3 for Camping Select rated properties.
Throughout British Columbia, an Approved Accommodation sign is awarded to tourist accommodations that have been inspected and have met Tourism British Columbia’s standards of courtesy, comfort and cleanliness for the current or previous year. Accommodation establishments may display the white “Approved Accommodation” sign. A campground that is new and has not yet been inspected is noted as “PROVISIONAL – NEW CAMPGROUND” in the listing.

Listing Enhancements Campground operators have the opportunity to
“enhance” their listings with the use of colour or a screened box. These enhancements do not reflect any special rating or quality of the establishment. They are advertising preferences.
