Being the second largest country in the world has its perks: you can visit two distinct oceans, drive through endless wheat fields, see the mountain range that runs through the provinces, swim in the great lakes, or camp in a number of different forest terrains that Canada has to offer. With all these options, spending time in the great outdoors has never been easier. FlightHub reviews our top picks for the best Canadian campsite you should consider visiting this summer!
Yoho National Park, British Columbia
When Parks Canada describes this Yoho National Park as a “Place of awe and wonder,” you know that there’s no way you’re missing out on camping here. Having opened in 1885, the park was named after the Cree expression of awe and wonder, the park is home to some of Canada’s most outstanding natural landscapes: from the Emerald Lake to the Takakkaw Falls, enjoy the parks camping and hiking opportunities while you can.
Jasper National Park of Canada, Alberta (Columbia Icefield Campground)
Established in 1907, Jasper National Park is the largest national park in the Canadian Rockies. The Park encompasses over 10,000 square kilometres of natural and mountainous wilderness, 97% of which is protected. Whether you’re looking to hike trails, swim in lakes, gaze at waterfalls, or sit in hot springs, Jasper has it all and more.
Kouchibouguac National Park, New Brunswick
With a country that borders both oceans you’re in no shortage of finding some sweet shoreline to camp and play on. For obvious reasons, it’s always best to camp out on a beach during the summer months, and at Kouchibouguac National Park, the fun never stops. With an abundance of lagoons, barrier islands, and sand dunes, the park offers visitors the opportunity to swim, bike and hike through the entire park.
Prince Edward Island National Park
Located on the island-province of P.E.I, the National Park is relatively small in comparison to other parks found throughout the country, but what is lacks for in size it makes up for in stunning natural beauty. Located on the island’s north shore, protected beaches, sand dunes, and salt marshes provide camp goers the unique opportunity to explore the park in a more intimate way. With its picturesque orange rock contrasted by the ocean’s stark blue, visiting Prince Edward Island National Park is a must for any Anne of Green Gables fans!
Pacific Rim National Park Reserve, British Columbia
A mix of beach and dense forest, Pacific Rim National park is where Canadians and foreign tourists alike come to play in the waves of beautiful British Columbia. Located on the pacific shores of Canada’s western border, visitors find themselves entranced in a place filled with lush temperate rainforests, and rugged coast line. Not something most people think about when imagining a Canadian beach! FlightHub recommends visiting Long Beach, as it extends from Tofino, an international surfing hotspot, all the way to Ucluelet.
