Fees, discounts and reservations
Fees are charged at some recreation sites and trails. Fees collected by operators (cash only) will vary depending on the services provided at the site or trail and are used to cover the costs of repairs, maintenance and supervision. Please visit “Find a site or trail” to determine which sites and trails have fees.
Additional vehicles at sites where fees are collected:
- Maximum one vehicle per party unless vehicle is towed
- Additional vehicles require a payment - 50% of the "Daily Camping Fee"
- All vehicles must be kept on existing roads, parking areas or campsites
For more information, please see "Policies and strategies."
At managed camping sites where fees are collected, discounts of 50% off the regular camping fee are available to seniors and persons with disabilities that meet the following criteria. A person can only claim for a maximum of one type of discount.
Persons 65 years of age or older can receive a senior’s discount. The discount only applies to the senior and his/her spouse. To receive the discount, please show one piece of ID verifying age (i.e. drivers licence) to the campsite operator.
Persons with disabilities
You are eligible for a discounted camping fee if:
- You are designated as a Person with Disabilities (PWD) and receiving PWD benefits under the BC provincial government Employment and Assistance Program (administered by the BC Ministry of Social Development and Poverty Reduction). Obtain a current calendar year Release of Information form, issued by the BC Ministry of Social Development and Poverty Reduction. There are three options for requesting this form:
- Request one in person at your local office listed here.
Call 1 866 866-0800 ask for one over the phone. You will then have to go in person to retrieve the original and have it signed.
If you are registered for My Self Serve you can print one from your account.
Upon arrival at the campground, show the campsite operator the original approved Release of Information form and a second piece of ID.
- You have a child registered through the “At Home Program” (administered by the BC provincial government Ministry of Children and Family Development).
Upon arrival at the campground, show the campsite operator the original Letter of Eligibility and a second piece of ID (if possible, the child’s ID or the parent/legal guardian’s ID).
- You are a person living on-reserve and receiving Income Assistance for Persons with Disabilities (Disability Assistance) under the Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC) Income Assistance Program. If so, contact your Band Social Development Worker. Complete a current calendar year “Release of Personal Information” form, issued by a First Nation Administering Authority on behalf of INAC.
Upon arrival at the campground, show the campsite operator the original Release of Personal Information form and a second piece of identification.
The majority of recreation sites are on a “first come, first served basis;” however, a small number of campsites are available for reservation within the Chilliwack District. Check the specific recreation site for details on how to reserve a campsite.
