Travel Tips<br />

Provincial Parks<br />

There are over 1,000 provincial parks in British<br />

Columbia and 75 provincial parks in Alberta.<br />

Many offer accessible camping for RVs, and<br />

day-use for activities such as hiking, canoeing<br />

and fishing. There’s always a good place to stop<br />

beside a lake or stream for a picnic lunch or pull<br />

out a camping chair and sit back.<br />

Provincial parks in British Columbia can be found<br />

on www.bcparks.ca and reservations can be made<br />

at https://camping.bcparks.ca/. Of approximately<br />

10,700 campsites BC Parks manages, 55% are<br />

reservable and 45% are available on a first-come,<br />

first-served basis (FCFS). Most campgrounds with<br />

reservable sites also offer FCFS sites. To help you<br />

locate BC Parks, highway signs are posted on main<br />

access roads to provide advance notice at 2 km<br />

and 400 m from the park entrance.<br />

While opening and closing dates can vary, and<br />

may be dependent on weather, most BC Parks<br />

will be open May 1 to September 30. The coastal<br />

area and more southern parks may be open<br />

all year. Please visit www.bcparks.ca or<br />

www.albertaparks.ca and be sure to check the<br />

Visitor Centres to determine which parks are<br />

open along your way.<br />

Camping fees in BC and Alberta Parks vary<br />

according to facilities and services provided. You<br />

can reserve a campsite online or via a toll-free<br />

number. Sites are generally available on a First-<br />

Come-First-Served basis as well but many of the<br />

more popular parks fill up quickly so a reservation<br />

is recommended to avoid disappointment.<br />

Reservation service charges in British Columbia<br />

are $6 per night to a maximum of $18 plus tax. In<br />

Alberta, reservation service charges are $12 per<br />

reservation. The reservation fee and campsite fee<br />

must be paid in full at the time of reservation.<br />

To reserve a provincial park campsite<br />

in British Columbia, visit BC Parks at<br />

www.camping.bcparks.ca. Call Centre is open<br />

from 7am-7pm PST daily at 1-800-689-9025<br />

(North America).<br />

To reserve a campsite at an Alberta Provincial<br />

Park, visit www.Reserve.AlbertaParks.ca or call<br />

(from North America) 1-877-537-2757.<br />

National Parks (Parks Canada)<br />

National Parks protect outstanding examples of<br />

Canada’s natural environment. British Columbia<br />

is home to seven National Parks and Alberta<br />

hosts four famous Rocky Mountain National<br />

Parks and park reserves run by Parks Canada,<br />

each with their own distinct characteristics.<br />

Camping is an excellent way to experience these<br />

national treasures. To receive your FREE guide<br />

to National Parks and National Historic Sites<br />

in British Columbia please visit https://parks.<br />

canada.ca/voyage-travel/ or call toll-free<br />

1-888-773-8888.<br />

Seat Belts<br />

Alberta and British Columbia law requires that all<br />

drivers and passengers use seat belts while driving<br />

or riding in a motor vehicle. Strict car/booster<br />

regulations are in place for children up to the age of<br />

twelve years old, and they must be seated in the<br />

rear seats in an age/weight appropriate restraint<br />

system. Visit www.icbc.com/road-safety<br />

Mobile Cell Phones<br />

It is against the law to drive while using a<br />

handheld mobile phone or other electronic device.<br />

Drivers may use hands-free cell phones that are<br />

voice-activated, or activated by one touch, provided<br />

they are securely attached to the vehicle or driver’s<br />

body i.e. an ear piece. For more information, visit<br />

https://www.icbc.com/road-safety/crasheshappen/Distracted-driving/Pages/default.aspx<br />

Driving While Under Influenced by Cannabis<br />

(and other Drugs) or Alcohol<br />

It is a criminal offence to operate, or be in the care<br />

or control of a vehicle, whether in motion or not,<br />

with a blood alcohol content of more than .08<br />

percent. Police in BC can issue an immediate<br />

roadside prohibition to an impaired driver with a<br />

blood-alcohol content of .05 or higher. Drivers with<br />

blood alcohol content between .05 and .08 may<br />

also face fines and license suspensions, and have<br />

their vehicles impounded. Breath samples may be<br />

requested by a peace officer and refusing a<br />

breathalyzer test could also result in criminal<br />

charges. For drug sobriety testing and implications<br />

please visit https://www.icbc.com/road-safety/<br />

Thompson Okanagan<br />

The Thompson Okanagan truly has everything needed in a British Columbian<br />

paradise. Warm, sun drenched valleys, warm lakes with sandy beaches and<br />

lush, fruit laden orchards make it a vacation hot spot. People come to relax<br />

by the water, golf championship courses and sip regional wines. When<br />

boating, water-skiing and swimming are not in season, the region’s mountains<br />

become some of the province’s best snow-sport resorts. With so much to<br />

offer, you can be sure of a vacation that is either adventurous or relaxed -<br />

but never boring!<br />

Kootenay Rockies<br />

The best way to describe the Kootenay Rockies is as Canada’s most<br />

stunning mountain scenery. Year after year, visitors are dazed by the<br />

enormity of the mountains that rise up from the region’s valleys. The<br />

sensation of gazing up at towering glacial peaks humbles the region’s<br />

visitors. Even the most hardened travellers are unable to experience the<br />

Rockies without being touched by a sense of awe. The Kootenay Rockies<br />

region stretches from the Okanagan Valley in the west to the Alberta<br />

border in the east. The region contains four mountain ranges: the<br />

Selkirks, Purcells, Monashees and of course, the Rockies.<br />

Cariboo Chilcotin Coast<br />

The Cariboo Chilcotin Coast is a land of big adventure and wideopen<br />

spaces. Visit real working ranches and ride over rolling<br />

rangeland. Fish the provinces best fresh water lakes and secluded<br />

saltwater inlets. British Columbia’s wild history comes to life with<br />

rodeos, heritage villages and historic First Nations communities.<br />

In the 1800s miners from all over the world rushed to the Cariboo<br />

Chilcotin. The small towns boomed into cities almost overnight<br />

with men eager to strike it rich in the gold fields. Gold fever had<br />

hit British Columbia and with it came a legendary era of saloons,<br />

cowboys and Wild West frontier adventure. Eventually, the gold<br />

rush died out. With it went the miners and the bustling cities soon<br />

turned into empty buildings. Today, the legends and ghost towns<br />

have been faithfully brought back to life in towns like Barkerville,<br />

but the frontier adventure has always been alive and well.<br />

British Columbia’s north is a vast wilderness<br />

of grizzly bears, pristine glaciers, ancient totems<br />

and raw rugged beauty. Out of the vast land<br />

of white water, creeping glaciers and dense,<br />

ancient forests come tales of a wilderness<br />

steeped in mystery and adventure. The North<br />

is a land where outdoor recreation is a certainty<br />

and where alpine mountains and crystal clear<br />

lakes offer everything from helicopter skiing<br />

to salmon fishing. Ancient totems loom as a<br />

testament to show that aboriginal culture is<br />

not just vibrant, but alive and well. Visit and<br />

explore the North’s mysterious wild rivers<br />

and deep forests.<br />

VANCOUVER ISLAND & NORTHERN BC<br />

Rental Location: Vancouver Duration: 21 nights Distance: 3,000 km<br />

Vancouver to Port Hardy and the Inside Passage to Prince Rupert.<br />

Then all the way to the Yukon.<br />

This RV trip takes time. Start in Vancouver or Abbotsford with a BC Ferry crossing from<br />

Horseshoe Bay near Vancouver to Nanaimo and spend four days travelling north to Port Hardy<br />

on Vancouver Island. BC Ferries operates the Inside Passage route from Port Hardy to Prince<br />

Rupert. Spend three days around the Hazeltons and then take a week heading due north up the<br />

Stewart-Cassiar Hwy to the Yukon. Add four days to explore the Southern Lakes and Kluane<br />

National Park en route to Whitehorse.<br />

The long-distance route is outlined in four sections: Vancouver Island North; the three<br />

commercial centres of Prince Rupert, Terrace and Kitimat; the three Hazeltons; the Stewart-<br />

Cassiar; and the Southern Lakes Region in the Yukon.<br />

Bald Eagle, Vancouver Island<br />

SECTION 1: NANAIMO TO PORT HARDY (387 KM)<br />

The first leg heads north on Hwy 19A known as the Oceanside Route and passes through many<br />

delightful seaside communities such as Parksville, Qualicum Beach, Fanny Bay and Royston.<br />

Don’t dawdle too long as your destination is still two thousand kilometers away and there’s a<br />

ferry to catch.<br />

Comox is home to CFB Comox Aviation Museum and Search & Rescue base. The BC ferry from<br />

Powell River joins up here. Study the large scale image map of the entire Island taken from<br />

Landsat satellite situated along the Rotary Seawalk In Campbell River. The displays explains<br />

the history of the North Island and a lot about winds and currents with spring tides up to 18<br />

knots/hour ripping through Seymour Narrows. Campbell River Museum features logging<br />

displays from the days of railroad and high lead logging.<br />

Backing onto the Ferry at Port Hardy – Gord Rees<br />

Side-trip to Sayward. Visit this bustling dryland log sort yard to view heavy equipment<br />

wheeling around with bundles of logs to be dumped and made into log booms to be towed to<br />

mills farther south. Stroll out to the town wharf where sounds of whales can be heard on<br />

speakers mounted at the visitor centre.<br />

Woss is another logging town where the Nimpkish Valley Heritage Park includes a display of<br />

logging locomotives and explanations for forestry practices on the North Island. Hike the<br />

strenuous trail to the restored Woss Fire Lookout.<br />

Telegraph Cove retains its character as one of the coast’s last remaining boardwalk<br />

communities. The Whale Watching Interpretive Centre is built in the old cannery, with whale<br />

watch tours headed into Johnston Strait. Port McNeill is another resource town with the<br />

Harbour Info Centre showcasing a giant 30-ton burl from a Sitka spruce.<br />

Side-trip to Port Alice and Coal Harbour. These places lead to the Wild West Coast where<br />

ocean waters flow into Quatsino Sound on the west coast of the Island. Historic Port Alice has<br />

sign boards showing one of the first pulp mills in BC. Coal Harbour Museum is home to logging<br />

memorabilia in a run-down RCAF hanger built to operate surveillance on the outer coast during<br />

Port Hardy. Visit the Hardy Bay Seawall, dock and marina. Learn all about Pacific salmon at the<br />

Quatse Salmon Stewardship Centre.<br />

rides, and a good reason to Go North. Enjoy twenty hours of stunning views from Bear Cove<br />

to Prince Rupert with brief stops at Bella Bella and Klemtu. Give yourself time at the terminal<br />

as the ferry only loads from one end. The vessel has a capacity for 600 passengers and 87<br />

cars, and can handle 3.3 m swells and rollers across Queen Charlotte and Hecate Straits<br />

before entering the sheltered waters of the Inside Passage. Fog banks can lift to see fish farms,<br />

lighthouses, far off villages, and light markers on exposed reefs. Watch for whales, dolphins<br />

and sea lions.<br />

in Prince Rupert. Container ships, bulk carriers and general cargo ships connect with milelong<br />

unit trains hauling loads of coal, wheat and potash from across the Continental Divide.<br />

at the start of the Kitimat-Kemano Project in the 1950s. The Kenny Dam was built with a<br />

16 km spillway and penstocks, twice the height of Niagara Falls, to provide hydropower<br />

to the aluminum smelter.<br />

Float Plane Base in Cow Bay, Prince Rupert – Gord Rees<br />

Side trip to the Hazeltons. Native culture is embedded in all the towns situated along the<br />

Skeena River, and the centre of totem pole collections on the Northwest Coast. Haida, Tsimshian<br />

and Klingit First Nations are credited with making some of the earliest totem poles. Emily Carr<br />

was one of the first artists to grasp the compelling power of totem poles as a form of art.<br />

Historic “Old Hazelton” remains much like the original settlement, founded in 1866 when it was<br />

the main staging area for the Omineca Gold Rush served by the Hazelton stern wheeler, now an<br />

historic site on the Skeena River. Its days were numbered after the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway<br />

began service along the river.<br />

K’san Historical Village and Museum in Hazelton, home of the Gitxsan people, is in the ancient<br />

village of Gitanmaax near the confluence of the Skeena and Bulkley Rivers. Visit the carving<br />

house to observe the delicate art of chiseling and whittling totem poles dedicated to preserving<br />

native culture.<br />

the Kitwanga River.<br />

SECTION 3: STEWART-CASSIAR HIGHWAY #37 (750 KM)<br />

Although this segment looks like the longest, loneliest stretch of highway, its remote ruggedness<br />

offers few towns and many points of interest. Campgrounds are well spaced at Meziadin,<br />

Kinaskin and Boya Lake Provincial Parks. The Grand Canyon of the Stikine lies within Stikine<br />

River Provincial Park.<br />

Dease Lake, Stewart-Cassiar Highway - KHR<br />

Side trip to Stewart and Hyder. Take the Glacier Highway 37A from Meziadin Junction. Pull over<br />

for a good view of Bear Glacier and pass by the Wall of Tears where a series of waterfalls<br />

cascade from great heights. Your passport is required to cross into the USA at Hyder, known<br />

locally as “Check Point Charlie”. The highlight is seasonal bear viewing at Fish Creek Wildlife<br />

Observation Site. Then follow a rough gravel road up the mountain to a panoramic view<br />

overlooking Salmon Glacier.<br />

This Southern Lakes region includes Teslin, Tagish, Atlin, Carcross and an extension to Kluane<br />

National Park at Haines Junction on the Alaska Hwy from Watson Lake to Whitehorse. The<br />

Land of the Midnight Sun brings to life the stories from the literary giants Robert Service, Jack<br />

London and Pierre Burton when discovering the North.<br />

Some of the more than 100 Totem Poles in the Kispiox<br />

area of The Three Hazeltons – Gord Rees<br />

routes between the Coast and Yukon interior. Johnson was a Tlinget man, and a unique<br />

businessman. There is an immaculately restored 1928 Chevy that he barged from Whitehorse<br />

by sternwheeler to Teslin before there were roads. It was repainted in white house paint to be<br />

disguised for hunting wolves on the frozen lakes.<br />

Mount Logan at 5,959m/19,545 ft as Canada’s highest peak. This is the greatest concentration<br />

of surging glaciers in North America. An electronic display tracks a collared grizzly throughout<br />

her range during the four seasons, crossing the busy highway numerous times in search of<br />

food, or avoiding large male bears that would kill her cub. Spectacular glacier flights operate<br />

from the local air strip.<br />
