by | Jul 25, 2022 | Camping | 0 comments

British Columbia has many beautiful campsites, from its vast provincial parks to some of the finest private campgrounds in the country. It’s an ideal destination for outdoor enthusiasts because of its diversity.

The landscape in BC is unlike any other province, ranging from the lush Pacific Coast rainforests of Vancouver to the lakeshore communities and wineries of the Okanagan. And with rocky coastlines, towering mountain ranges, inland deserts, and much more in between, simply drive 40 kilometers in any direction in BC and you’ll often feel like you’ve entered a different world!

In a province this diverse, there’s no reason to limit yourself to the same old campsites you’ve visited before — here are five of the best private campgrounds in BC, all available for rent today on Campertunity.

1. Welcome Harvest Farm
