Staycation - car camping locally.

Gents any ideas where to go for car camping locally ? Iíll be working from home, i figure i might as well go camping at the same time since the weather is nice.

The regular camping sites seem like a bad idea due to this social distancing requirement. Is there some trail or off the beaten path place that has nice views for car camping ?

Uhm. If a provincial campsite is too ‘close together’ for your social distancing then no amount of fresh air can help you

West harrison forest service road up to about 20-25 km has reasonable cell reception.

Was getting LTE in some spots.

I'd head out that way. Lots of spots here and there and the road appeared freshly graded when I went in about 4 weeks ago.

Didnt hit any snow.

Take bear spray and leave a trip plan with someone.

If you go to the west side of Harrison proceed with caution, in December there was active logging. If you don’t have a radio, take the corners slowly.

This is probably as local as it gets for camping. Has free wifi as well.

I don’t see west Harrison forest service road on google maps. I found the east forest service road but I guess the west road is the other side of the lake ?

Google map the sasquatch inn near harrison mills.


Follow it north from there and you'll see it.

Alternatively invest in a copy of the backroads mapbook
