Recreation Sites and Trails BC COVID-19 Response

June 1, 2020: People across the province, once again, have access to safe outdoor recreation opportunities, while meeting the guidelines of the Provincial Health Officer (PHO).

  • Most recreation sites are open to camping
  • Many sites provide simple, rustic camping with basic facilities and minimal maintenance
  • To ensure physical distancing, you may notice some changes in campgrounds, including additional spacing between campsites and limitations on the number of guests in campgrounds
  • Backcountry cabins will remain closed
  • Recreation sites that attract large crowds may remain closed until it is safe to reopen at a later date

Health and Safety Guidelines

As we get back into our recreation sites and trails, it is critical that we continue to abide by the guidelines and recommendations of the PHO, which includes non-essential travel.

Minimize the risk to your health and safety by:

  • visiting sites and trails close to home
  • respecting any facility or area closures and to follow the physical distancing requirements set out by the PHO
  • bringing hand sanitizer and practicing appropriate hygiene. If you are sick, please visit another time

RSTBC is doing everything we can to ensure sites and trails are safe. We are all in this together, and we are counting on everyone to do their part so sites and trails can remain open.

For now, visitors can expect the following:

Recreation Sites

  • Sites are open to camping and day use activities
  • Be prepared to use your “clean trip kit”
  • Campers are expected to carry out their own garbage, “Pack it in, Pack it out”
  • We need all visitors to do their part to keep site operators, staff, and other visitors safe

Recreation Trails

  • Trails remain open; however, associated recreation facilities are closed
  • The public is reminded to maintain safe physical distances of at least two meters and choose low risk activities while using trails
  • Trail users are expected to carry out their own garbage, are responsible for their own safety, and should exercise additional caution as trails may not be maintained during this time

Recreation Facilities

  • Facilities where people gather and are in contact with frequently touched surfaces will remain closed
  • Closures will apply to overnight shelters, back-country cabins, day use shelters, and other related infrastructure

Visitors should check out the RSTBC website before heading out to be prepared for their visit and to be aware of any closures.

RSTBC continues to monitor the COVID-19 outbreak closely and is following recommendations set out by the PHO.
