The provincial government is introducing a pilot program in six provincial parks. Free day-use passes can be reserved online in order to access the areas.

“People in BC love the outdoors, but some of our most popular parks are experiencing a high number of visitors, resulting in crowded facilities, packed parking lots and safety issues, such as parking along the highway,” said Environment Minister George Heyman. “This pilot program acknowledges that frequent park users have an important role to play in protecting these important natural spaces and the species that depend upon them.”

Beginning Monday, people can get a free BC Parks day-use pass and visit certain areas in six of the busiest parks. The free day-use passes can be obtained on the Discover Camping website and will be released daily at 6 a.m. for same-day bookings. 

Further details about the passes required in each park, along with detailed information about BC Parks response to COVID-19 and which parks remain closed, can be found here:
