High cost of camping may be affecting BC parks’ visitor numbers

British Columbians are surrounded by natural beauty, but the cost of exploring it is climbing. Camping fees have nearly doubled in some provincial parks since 2001. The province has hiked fees three times over the past decade, making parks such as Alice Lake, Porteau Cove and Golden Ears $30 a night, up from $18.50 in 2001. Combined with new fees for reservations and secondary vehicles, the cost of sleeping under the stars can be up to $48 per night.
