Long lines, crying kids, and “meh” photo ops can cramp your camping style.
Find space, serenity and more by dodging the weekend crowds:
1. Your own personal beach (sort-of)
Have your fun in the sun without anyone else blocking your light!
Staking out a good spot for your umbrella can be a struggle on a packed beach.
The beach is much less crowded during the weekday. Lines for rentals, ice cream, museums, and other fun activities are a lot shorter too!
And yes: depending on the park, you just might have the beach to yourself.
2. Chat with staff
Ever wanted to ask a naturalist about those mysterious footprints your aunt’s cousin’s brother twice-removed saw? It’s tough to get a word in edgewise on a busy weekend.
It’s no secret that some of our events and programs draw BIG crowds on the weekend. Weekday Discovery events have a more intimate setting.
3. Get your dream site
It seems like every year is a race to get your perfect site during the summer weekends, yet your old favourite remains empty during the week! Take a few days off and book the campsite you really want.
Craving a yurt or cabin? We’ve got lots of midweek vacancies, even during peak summer months.
If you’re still having trouble getting into your favourite park, try another one nearby!
4. Seeking serenity?
It’s as simple as this: weekdays are quieter.
With fewer people at the park during the week, you’ll have more opportunities for relaxing moments with your group. Less noise = less stress.
5. Ultimate Insta-worthy moments
We all want an impressive shot of the Crack, Big Bend, or Booth’s Rock. Unfortunately, so does everyone else.
Less foot traffic on weekdays means more opportunities for you to take an awe-inspiring picture (that we’re certain you’ll tell your grandkids about).
