Canada is home to a long list of incredible camping spots, including right here on Vancouver Island. 

When it comes to planning your outdoor adventure and choosing the perfect spot, the views, proximity to water, activity options, wildlife and facilities are just a small number of considerations to consider.

So where is the best place to camp in Canada?

According to Scouts Canada, our very own Pacific Rim National Park in Tofino made the list of Canada’s ‘most epic’ camp destinations!

The ranking was created with data from a survey completed by 46,704 volunteers and Scouts, who shared their favourite campsites and explored many decision-making questions that are critical to finding the best campsite for any level or type of adventure.

Alberta’s Jasper National Park ranked as Canada’s #1 ‘most epic’ camp destination in Canada followed by Vancouver Island’s Pacific Rim National Park ranking second.

Pacific Rim is a breathtaking park, full of old-growth trees and right beside the ocean.

Atlantic Canada scoring the highest number of epic campsites with Gros Morne National Park in Newfoundland and Labrador and Fundy National Park in New Brunswick.
