Share this article

To prevent overbooking and last-minute changes, Alberta Parks (Canada) announced that its reservation change fee would increase from CA$5 to CA$10 on March 31.

According to a press release, reservations made before March 31 will carry the old price.

“We know that life happens and plans change, but it is important to do what we can to promote fair and equal access to campsites while continuing to prioritize affordability,” the release reads.

Changes were first announced in January when Alberta Parks went with a new system designed to cut down on the overload of bookings that the province has experienced in the past.

The new system allows campers to reserve up to 90 days ahead to individual sites and 180 days for comfort and group camping sites.

The province has also cut down the maximum number of nights per booking to ten from 16.

The ministry’s data show the number of campers making trips lasting ten nights or more increased by 154% in 2021, but 47.5% of these reservations were later altered compared to just 10% of other reservations. Additionally, 27% of those who reserved 16 consecutive nights canceled their reservation ultimately.
