BC is such a cool and unique place and I’m not surprised that they’ve embraced the concept of glamping a long time ago. The entire province offers a great deal of jaw-dropping natural landscapes with wild mountain ranges, beautiful beaches on the Pacific coast, and some amazing rainforests.
Glamping in BC is ideal for all outdoor enthusiasts who prefer a more luxurious spot to enjoy the natural landscapes of BC. And the province has delivered, with amazing tents, yurts, and other unique glamping spots popping up everywhere around.
Popular destinations for glamping in BC include Kootenay Rockies, Mount Revelstoke National Park, Vancouver Island, the Great Bear Rainforest and many more.
In the winter BC’s mountain ranges are known for winter activities, such as skiing and dog sledding and BC is a home to over 10 major ski resorts.

They have 5 of these tents spread across the Fort and for families looking to beat the camping blues, this is just perfect. A fridge, shower facility, BBQ, utensils, campfire with logs provided and even a microwave that you can use from the cafeteria…..its comfort camping in style and the kids loved it. Just get some good insect/mosquito repellents….Camping at such a historical site is in itself an experience.”
