Typically, the BC Parks reservation refund policy dictates a three-month deadline, but due to the extraordinary wildfire situation this year, refunds have been extended.

The vast majority of Discover Camping customers have received refunds, but due to the volume of visitors, BC Parks wants to ensure no one is missed.

Anyone affected by provincial park closures due to wildfires, who has not already received a refund, is encouraged to apply online: http://www.env.gov.bc.ca/bcparks/reserve/application-refund.html
