Hostels

If you're idea of hostelling is pulling up a piece of the rug, in an urban fallout shelter, with a dozen strangers - think again. Hostels range from a place to unroll your sleeping bag, to something approaching resort like accommodations, in beautiful settings with you're own private room. Prices are still unbeatable and the company is usually interested and interesting world travelers. If you're a boarder or skier take note, there are hostels in most of the major resort areas throughout the country.

You'll find three hostels in Vancouver as well as a hostel in Whistler and just to the south in Squamish.

Camping

Provincial Parks

British Columbia has a seamingly endless number of campsites, both public and private. If you're going to explore some of the parks surrounding Vancouver make a point of taking advantage of the reservation system, since they are extremely popular in season (be aware that not all Provincial Park campgrounds accept reservations, and by no means do they all have sites accessible by car).

Some parks have walk-in camping, which generally involves carrying your gear into the site on foot. Distances to walk in sites may be only a few metres but they do vary significanlty and we try ("try", that's the operative word) to distinguish between walk-in sites and back country sites. Our distinction is that backcountry sites require some "real backpacking" to reach the tent site. Check with the park to ensure that the sites are what you expect in order to avoid unpleasant surprises.

As should be obvious British Columbia camping is generally more rustic than what you'll find in eastern Canada and RVs, motorhomes and campers may have problems finding fully serviced sites.

Forest Service Campgrounds

BC Forest Service Recreation from the BC Forest Service

BC Forests have over eleven hundred camping sites scattered throughout the province. Some are managed and some are user managed, with some of the managed sites charging a fee for camping. Many of these sites are located in spectacular natural surroundings. In addition the Forest Service has a large network of trails it oversees, which include some of the finest hiking in the province.

Note: Forest Service sites can be isolated and access may require a 4x4, chains and the use of active logging roads (definately not recommended), which may be restricted (access may change overnight because of policy and/or road conditions). In addition austerity programs have trimmed the number of sites available and/or the type of management of the sites. Definately contact the Forest Service before you go!
