Parks Canada Offering ‘Hassle-Free’ Camping
Tents and all the equipment required for camping will be offered through a pilot project this summer at two Canadian national parks in the Maritimes, CBC News Nova Scotia reported.
Parks Canada wants to increase camper numbers by offering what’s called equipped camping for $55 a night in nine of its locations including Kouchibouguac National Park in New Brunswick and Cape Breton Highlands National Park.
“Equipped camping includes a six-person tent that is already set up for visitors as well as tent pads and all of the equipment that they need to prepare their meals outdoors,” said Manon Cuthbertson, Cape Breton Highlands’ product development officer.
All people need to bring is bedding and food, said Cuthbertson.
The pilot project is aimed at people who want to try camping and also international visitors who travel light.
