Pack up the tent and get all the ingredients for s'mores, it's camping time! Finally, at national parks in Canada camping is being allowed once again. This is literally just in time for summer.\nFor anyone longing for summer nights around the campfire, sitting under the stars and relaxing in the great outdoors, this is what you've been waiting for.\nStarting on June 22, Parks Canada will start to reopen campsites at national parks. This is right after the first day of summer on the 20th.\nHowever, this is all happening gradually so not every spot in the country will immediately let you pitch a tent.\nEnvironment Minister Jonathan Wilkinson told The Canadian Press that 31 national parks are part of the initial campsite reopening on Monday.\nThat includes Gros Morne in Newfoundland, Banff in Alberta and Kluane in Yukon.\nAlong with only opening some parks, at first, only people with existing reservations will be allowed to camp.\nThen more bookings will be allowed and more sites will open up across the country in the coming weeks.\n"The weather is getting much better," Wilkinson said. "This is a good opportunity to enjoy the outdoors."\nIt's been months of waiting to camp again as the sites became unavailable when Parks Canada shut down parks on March 18.\nView this post on Instagram From roasting marshmallows 🔥, to sleeping under the stars 💫, nothing’s more summer than camping adventures! ⛺ Whether you’re new to it all, or just need a refresher, check out our #LearnToCamp activities with @MEC – they are a great way to experience camping without the stress. 📍: Gulf Islands National Park Reserve 📷: @katier577 . . . . . #gulfislands #gulfislandsnpr #vancouverisland #ExploreCanada #parkscanada #canada #wanderlust #travel #wander #nationalpark #travel #explorer #lovetotravel #travelmore #lovetotravel #camping #summer #getoutside #explorebc #bc #beautifulbc #hellobc #tourismbc #travelbc #britishcolumbia #beautifulbritishcolumbia #camp A post shared by Parks Canada (@parks.canada) on Jun 3, 2019 at 12:45pm PDT\nWhen announcing the good news on June 17, Justin Trudeau noted how camping plays a role in people's lives.\n"For a lot of people, no summer is complete without getting the tent packed, the kids in the car and the time off to go camping," he said.\nTrudeau asked for Canadians to follow public health recommendations whether they're out camping this summer or just having BBQs.\nView this post on Instagram Nighttime in national parks = amazing captures like this! 🌟 Pictured here is the Asulkan cabin in Glacier National Park, found nestled at the end of the trail amongst the Columbia Mountains. 📷: @nolangale . . . . . #GlacierNationalParkCanada #glaciernp #glacier #explorebc #bc #beautifulbc #hellobc #tourismbc #travelbc #britishcolumbia #beautifulbritishcolumbia #ExploreCanada #parkscanada #canada #wanderlust #travel #wander #nationalpark #travel #explorer #lovetotravel #travelmore #lovetotravel A post shared by Parks Canada (@parks.canada) on Sep 26, 2019 at 7:15pm PDT\nAccording to The Canadian Press, anyone planning to travel outside of their province to camp at or go to a Parks Canada spot has to follow local travel rules.\nThat's because some provinces and territories are only allowing people to come in for essential reasons.\nMore than half of Canada's national parks opened to visitors again on June 1.\nThat included access to day-use areas, trails, beaches and green spaces.
