- everyone is welcome!

Our parks are beautiful and serene places to visit and we make sure everyone is welcome. Accessible and barrier-free campsites are available for nightly and seasonal reservations and our service centres and facilities are designed for customers with reduced mobility. These campsites may offer proximity to accessible service centres or washrooms, cement pads or firm gravel for wheelchairs or walkers, or be free of barriers such as campsite boundary markers. Our accessible and barrier-free campsites can only be booked by campers with a valid Accessible Parking Permit (with number and expiry information), and this must be displayed while in the park. 

Beach Wheelchair Program

Available advanced notice. Our parks have access to beach wheelchairs to help improve the beach experience of our visitors with reduced mobility. The wheelchairs are made from a lightweight aluminum frame with three buoyant tires. Children and adults can ride over the sand with relative ease and can be taken into one foot of water. They may be available on a first-come, first-served basis, or they may be reserved one week in advance of a reservation. These wheelchairs are available free of charge.
