Pull those 3 season tents out of the crawl space and dust them off, camping season is here. Here are some helpful links to help you pick the perfect get away spot.
* Golden Ears Provincial Park
* Manning Park (Lightening Lake)
* Alice Lake
* Cultus Lake (although can be busy/noisy on weekends)
* Porpoise Bay
MyVancouver on Twitter (of Inside Vancouver) posed the question of “what is your favorite campsite near Vancouver” and received these answers:
@TourismLangley: Derby Reach Regional park for bar fishing or Fort Camping at Brae Island.
@andrewip: Garibaldi Park is pretty awesome for camping with lots to do. Otherwise, Widgeon Creek can’t be beat.
@lilchick: Squamish river valley! It’s off road car camping and it’s wicked. Untamed wilderness for the most part!
@TylerIngram: Gold Creek @ Golden Ears Provincial Park
@karlwoll: Best campsite = Granite Falls. No road access, pristine wilderness and you sleep below a thundering waterfall http://www.outdoorvancouver.ca/featured-kayak-route-indian-arm/
@hummingbird604: For me, camping means a cabin with hot showers, wifi and a warm bed to sleep in.
@TourismSquamish: Favourite camping around Vancouver? Alice Lk for car camping http://www.tourismsquamish.com/attractions/alice-lake-provincial-park and Garibaldi Lk for backcountry
Anyone else have any other hidden gems?
Lastly, Trails.com has a nice list of eco-friendly camping equipment.
