Victoria, BC– The Capital Regional District (CRD) is gearing up for the 2018 camping season. The CRD manages campgrounds at Island View Beach, Sooke Potholes and Jordan River Regional Parks. The campgrounds offer affordable, self-contained camping in a natural setting, close to urban and suburban areas.

Here’s what’s new for the 2018 season:

The CRD has launched a new online reservation system for Island View Beach Regional Park. The seasonal campground is open from May 18 to September 3, 2018. Reservations can be made up to 30 days in advance.

The CRD and T’Sou-ke Nation have entered into a multi-year agreement for operation of the campground at Sooke Potholes Regional Park. T’Sou-ke Nation operates the Spring Salmon Place Campground on behalf of the CRD. The campground operates seasonally, on a first-come, first-served basis. Now open for the season until September 16, 2018.

Jordan River Regional Park campground operates year-round, on a first-come, first-served basis. New information signs on surfing etiquette are in the park, courtesy of the BC Surfer Riders Association.
