Frequently Asked Questions

I cannot select the arrival date I want - what's wrong?

When you enter dates to make a reservation, only valid arrival dates are displayed. Reservations are available on a yearly basis. The dates available in the date selection calendar and drop down boxes will be limited to dates within the current year. Reservations must also be made at least 2 days in advance of arrival.

What are quick dates?

Quick dates are commonly selected date ranges. The list will include the next couple of weekends, and holiday weekends. You don't have to use the quick dates to select an arrival date, you can enter any valid date with in the reservation window and you can edit or change this date.

What is the shopping cart?

The shopping cart allows you to add multiple bookings into your cart and hold them until each booking has been completed and paid (status of Paid-Completed). Unpaid bookings will be lost if you log out or your session is inactive for more than 15 minutes.

How do I use the shopping cart?

On the home page, begin by filling out steps 1. to 5., and reserve. The next page will display contents of the shopping cart and allow you to add another site by clicking on the 'Add Another Booking' link. You may continue to add bookings up to the maximum number of three. You may also change and delete bookings, or start payment on any booking. Once you have completed a successful payment transaction on the first booking, you must return to the shopping cart and pay for each booking until all bookings have been completed. To access all unpaid bookings, select the link ‘View Cart’ located on the right of the top menu bar.

Do all bookings in the shopping cart have to be in the same park with the same arrival and departure dates?

No. Each booking can be from different parks, campgrounds, and have different arrival and departure dates. When adding additional bookings, change the park and camping dates on the home page. This is ideal for campers that are planning on visiting several different parks during their vacation.

Can I pay for all bookings in the shopping cart together?

No. There may be individual camping restrictions that apply to specific sites and must be confirmed or acknowledged for each booking. Payment for each booking must be processed and paid separately, however the same credit card can be used each time. Each booking will have its own transaction reference number, unique booking number and confirmation letter.

How can I tell which sites have electrical service?

There are some optional filters available at the bottom of the reservation preferences panel on the left that allow you to include or exclude sites based on certain criteria. If you want a site with electrical service, but one that is not wheelchair accessible, you can choose to Include the Electrical Service option and Exclude the Wheelchair Accessible option. The maps, lists and grids will then show only the sites that meet your choices in green.

What's the fastest way to finding a site?

There are several tools available to help you find a site. The fastest way is to fill out the information you know - your reservation type, party size etc. then click on Find a Site. You can also use additional search preferences (click on the arrow button beside More Search Preferences). This allows you to filter the results to show only certain site types or to exclude certain site types.

I have a favourite site. How can I tell when it is available?

This website provides several tools to help you with your stay. If you are looking for availability for your favorite site, the easiest way is to select the park and campground in from the drop down menus and then select the site. You can also use the map browser to drill down to the site you are interested in. You can then click on the Site Details button and you will have the option of viewing a Site Calendar for the site. The Site Calendar will show you when the site is available and allow you to scroll the dates to see the whole season at a glance. If you have a favorite camping area, the Grid View will show you which site availability for the selected area.

All the sites on the grid show restrictions. What does this mean?

A site that shows as yellow on the map, calendar or list means that the site is available for the dates you have selected, but that the site does not meet your current reservation preferences. If you click on the site details it will show you what is restricting the site. It is usually the reservation type, equipment size or party size. If you have used the More Search Preferences, these options will also affect the site restrictions.

I made a reservation through the call centre. How do I view it online?

If you already have an online account, you should be able to see your reservation by logging in to the My Account section of the website. If you don't have an online account, you can create one - click on My Account and follow the links for New Customers. If you use the same name and address information you used when you made your reservation, you should then be able to access your reservations online. If you still cannot see your bookings, the call center booking may have been made under a different user account. You will have to call the call center to confirm or change the booking.

How do I cancel reservation?

You have to log in to cancel a booking. Click the My Account option and log in using your email address and password. You can then select the booking you want to change or cancel from the list of your reservations by clicking on the Details link. You will then see the details of the booking and have the option to change, cancel or print the reservation using the quick links on the right.
