BC camping guide for the Exciting Whistler Corridor of Beautiful British Columbia.

Welcome to the BC camping information site for the Whistler corridor.

First, let’s take a look at what we mean as the Whistler corridor.

The corridor stretches from Squamish,(Stawamus Park) less than an hour from Vancouver, through Whistler, Pemberton, Mount Currie, Lillooet, to Lytton and Cache Creek. Arguably the most beautiful 250 km (150 miles) of camping opportunities in the world.

Within the corridor you may park a quarter million dollar class A motorhome in a gorgeous park like Alice Lake, or pitch a tent next to a glacier at Joffre Lakes. You can take a shower with nice hot water at Birkenhead Park or refresh yourself in the ice cold water of Duffy Lake.

Alice Lake is a popular place and a very busy one as well. It is located 13km (8 miles) past Squamish on the right.

Nairn Falls is a half hour drive past Whistler on the right. Nice big trees, roomy sites, and with a 20 minute walk to the amazing falls it rates very highly as one of the best areas to camp.

Birkenhead is located 17 km (10.5 miles) West of D’Arcy off Highway 99. On a scenic lake.

Campsite at Duffy Lake

Trout fishing at Duffy Lake is excellent.

There are about 5 sites here. Further along towards Lillooet you will find a few more. These are called BC forestry sites. Most are free. If you like the sound of rushing water to lull you to sleep, this is it. Coyooshe Creek is very fast flowing as the water bounds along through the ever narrowing valley adding excitement during your BC camping experience.

The Whistler corridor offers such a variety of fantastic camping opportunities as you can camp year round. A four season tent is required for cold weather camping and a down sleeping bag is a must. You may want to use a double sleeping bag to keep you warm. If your aluminum ten poles ever break you should consider fiberglass replacement ten poles as they are lighter and hold up well. Pop up tent trailers and pop up tent campers are good but in winter you must carry portable generators unless you carry dry firewood as you may want to keep a 24 hour campfire going. You also need to beef up your campfire cooking recipes as you burn more calories in the cold.

RV camping supplies are available all along the corridor. If you are interested in checking out used camping trailers you whould inquire at some of the dealers in the Langley area. Camping beds, camping air mattresses and camping tent equipment are available at Mountain Equipment Co-op and Walmart stores.

After a very scenic, twisting drive through very interesting mountains, you arrive at Lillooet. Watch for the BC Hydro campground sign on your right. If you are able to find a sight it’s yours free. Maximum stay is 14 nights. Water and pit toilets are supplied and the caretakers keep the place very clean. There is even fire wood free for your use.

Two more Hydro campgrounds are located at Carpenter Lake on the road to gold Bridge.

Skihist Provincial Campground 6km (3.5 miles) north of Lytton Provincial Campground is not exactly in the corridor but offers the best BC Camping along the number 5 highway between Cache Creek and Hope. If you turn left onto the number 5 highway at Lytton and drive just a few minutes you will see it on the right.
