The British Columbia Lodging and Campgrounds Association (BCLCA) has launched its 2023/2024 Super Camping/Select Lodging directory and guide, an indispensable resource for camping enthusiasts. This comprehensive guide, coupled with the Super Camping App, is all you need to plan your next adventure in British Columbia’s great outdoors.
BCLCA’s Super Camping Directory is designed to assist outdoor enthusiasts, whether you’re camping, RVing, or embarking on a vacation drive through British Columbia. Featuring over 200 listings, this guide provides detailed information on private campgrounds, RV parks, and lodging establishments that are members of the BCLCA. It also lists Parks Canada campgrounds, RV dealers in B.C., and RV rental companies.
Organized into three sections according to the six British Columbia tourism regions, the guide presents an easy-to-follow layout.
The first section houses Super Camping and Select Lodging listings, each entry cross-referenced with a corresponding numbered dot on the pullout BC map. The second section is dedicated to RV dealers, rental companies, and services, while the third section focuses on winter camping and RVing options open year-round.
In June, those who will grab a printed copy will find a pullout map conveniently located in the center of the guide, with all listed properties identified by a red numbered dot. These dots correlate with the relevant page numbers for the detailed listings.
The guide also includes rates for 2023, with 2022 rates substituted only in rare cases where current information was unavailable.
In addition to the directory, the guide provides a “Know Before You Go” section that features useful resources such as news, travel advice, safety tips, campfire bans, and the Camper’s Code. The printed guide will be available in June at British Columbia Visitor Centres.
Super Camping App: Your Outdoor Companion
The Super Camping British Columbia App complements the Super Camping Directory, offering campers an interactive guide to camping, RVing, and outdoor vacationing in British Columbia.
Through an easy-to-use interface, the app provides users with an introductory video, camping guide, tips, and a comprehensive map. Additionally, it includes real-time information on BC weather, road conditions, and fire bans.
For personalized planning, users can bookmark their favorite spots by tapping the star icon on any page, allowing for quick access to preferred locations. The app also features an integrated map that shows all campgrounds, RV parks, and lodging on a single map, with specific listings accessible per category.
Stay informed with push notifications that deliver the latest updates, from special offers to local events. While the Super Camping App has been available for some time, it serves as the perfect digital companion to the newly released 2023/2024 Super Camping/Select Lodging directory and guide.
The BCLCA’s Super Camping Directory and App provide an invaluable resource for anyone looking to explore British Columbia’s stunning outdoors. Whether you’re a camper seeking your next adventure or a private campground owner looking to stay informed, these resources offer a wealth of information to help you make the most of BC’s vibrant camping and RVing scene.
