Camping and roofed accommodation

Winter in our parks is a beautiful time. It’s quiet and still. The air is fresh.

Fourteen parks offer overnight stays through the winter catering to every style from heated roofed accommodations to trailer and tent camping.

Most parks that offer overnight stays in the winter also offer winterized comfort stations (heated with running hot water, flush toilets and showers).

Roofed accommodations:

For those looking for a more comfortable winter stay, 10 parks offer heated roofed accommodations.

Winter backcountry camping is considerably more challenging and carries more risk than in the summer. Please hold off on winter backcountry unless you’re a more experienced camper and consult our winter safety page for more information.
